Birdfeeders, Birdhouses etc

Feed Me!

Some of you have huge ‘backyards’ with trees and grass, ponds and streams, others (like me), just have a few square feet of paving or an urban balcony; but we can all do something to help birds out by feeding them and providing nest-boxes and habitat. Even my 30feet-by-30feet urban ‘postage stamp’ has room for pots with native plants bearing berries and an old shed I can nail a bird box to. I have half a dozen feeders with food for many different species. In the UK at least, our gardens are an increasingly important resource to birds in the days of chemical farming and over urbanisation.

Ambitious birding gardeners might also want to share their good luck or good planning by installing a webcam pointed at their busy bird table or even inside a nestbox. There are times for all of us when we can’t get out into the field to indulge in our hobby, but if we can see out of a window on to a patch of our own we need never suffer withdrawal symptoms! I recently received a letter from a disabled birder living in a flat in a town in Scotland. Despite her disability confining her sh will manages to watch birds although having no garden she attracts birds with a window feeder.

    Winter is a tough season for wild birds. Natural food sources such as insects and berries are scarce, and they need lots of energy-rich food to maintain their fat reserves, which are called-upon most when temperatures drop. Providing a winter food source for birds is not only a great way to help your local wildlife; encouraging birds to visit your garden will supply you with plenty of interest during the winter months.
