Ground Feeders for Birds
Ground feeders are designed for ground foraging birds. The mesh bottom of a ground feeder keeps the bird food fresh, prevents water from standing in the feeder and allows the seeds to air dry after rain. Ground feeders can be located under an existing feeder to catch seeds dropped by birds.Read More
Birdwatching is so therapeutic and the more species you can spot in your garden, the more of a thrill it can be. In order to attract different species of birds, you need to meet their primary needs and these vary from bird to bird.
To make sure that all your local birds can enjoy your garden you will need to provide different feeders on different levels, with different types of foods. If this sounds confusing, or you want to attract a particular species, just give us a call and we can explain further.
