Handy Tips - Wild Bird Food

Click to enlarge
To keep your wild bird food in the best possible condition, keep it dry and away from rats and mice. If you have to store a lot of food, plastic dustbins are efficient and hold enough to feed a small army (or a large flock) of birds. Feeding seed on the ground attracts a number of bird species that won't use a feeder of any sort but any spare seed will attract mice and rats. To avoid conflicts
with the neighbours, feed on the ground in the morning and only put down sufficient food for the birds to eat during the day, leaving the ground clear by nightfall. To prevent disease, change your feeding area regularly.
