There are many types and varieties of bird feeders on the market. You can go from simple and less expensive birdfeeders, to more elaborate, luxurious bird feeders. Bird feeders differ from bird feeding stations.
BIRD FEEDING STATIONS
Bird feeding stations will have hooks, arms etc. to hold the bird feeders. The BIRDMILL is the perfect example of a bird feeding station, as it has 4 arms/hooks to enable to hang your own bird feeders on.
The most common bird feeders available are:
- Seed Feeder: these are transparent tubular feeders; the birds feed through a hole near the bottom of the feeder. This type of feeder can attract a wide range of birds, such as bluetits, great tits, coal tits, sparrows, and finches.
- Peanut Feeder: the feeder has a metal mesh, and holds peanuts for the birds to feed on. Birds, such as nuthatches, finches, bluetits, coaltits use the Peanut feeder.
- Fat Ball Feeder: use fat balls suitable for wild birds. These are excellent for use in the winter. Fat ball feeders attract birds such as bluetits, longtail tits, nuthatches, finches or woodpeckers.
WHICH BIRDFEEDER SHOULD I USE ON THE BIRDMILL?
Use birdfeeders which are not too wide or too large, as you want your Birdmill to be able to go round without obstruction. Narrow feeders are best suitable for the Birdmill, such as the ones you can find on our online store.
