Pigeon Proof Bird Feeders
Use pigeon proof feeders to deter these notorious birds from eating all your bird feedRead More
The UK’s most common pigeon is the wood pigeon. They are a very familiar sight in all gardens all around the UK and they are the least fussy eaters of all garden birds. If you have an open bird feeding area, it is more likely that pigeons and squirrels will dominate. Their large size will simply push other birds away. Pigeons are particularly good at scavenging and eating food from flat surfaces.
By investing in pigeon proof bird feeders, squirrel proof feeders and other guardian feeders, it is more likely that smaller birds, like robins and blue tits, will be able to feed in peace. These feeders have a wide diameter cage to stop bigger birds being able to access the food.
How do I keep pigeons off my bird feeder?
Pigeons love feeding on bird feeder scraps, so as well as investing in a pigeon proof feeder, always maintain your bird feeders and keep them clean. Catch falling seed with a tray.
You can also be careful about the types of bird feed that you put in your feeder. Pigeons are less keen on straight feeds, such as niger seeds. Read more on our blog about wood pigeon identification, habitat and food.
Wild birds need water as much as food for drinking and bathing. We always recommend putting fresh clean water out every day of the year.
