How to Choose a Bird Feeder

Bird feeders are a great no-mess way to provide food for the birds in your garden, however, there’s a lot of choice out there!

When deciding on which feeder to buy, it’s important to consider the following:

The type of food you will be using

There are five basic types of feeder on the market, which roughly speaking cater for the different types of food that you might put out for the birds.

  • Seed and Nyger Feeders
  • Sunflower Heart Feeders
  • Peanut Feeder
  • Energy Ball Feeder
  • Ground Feeder

How long you want the feeder to last

Robust stainless steel designs, such as our Peckish All Weather Feeders will last the longest, plastic will be less durable.

If you’re a newcomer to feeding the birds, it’s a good idea to start with our Peckish Complete Easy Feeder, which is a ready to use feeder, which is pre-filled with our premium Peckish Complete Seed Mix.

If you have a problem with squirrels!

Peckish offers two feeders which are squirrel proof, Peckish Squirrel Proof Seed Feeder and Peckish Squirrel Proof Peanut Feeder
