Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Should I supply drinking water for the birds?
A. Birds need fresh water to drink and bathe in so keep a constant supply available. Resources of water can be tricky to find in winter when it may be frozen and in summer when it can be dried out.
Q. What should I do when the bird bath freezes over?
A. Birds also need a supply of fresh clean water every day. If during winter the water in the bird bath freezes, then do not add any de-icers or chemicals. Gently tap the ice to break it up. This should allow it to melt allowing birds to gain access to the water, or alternatively, if safe to do so remove the ice, clean the bath and add fresh water.
Q. How should I position my feeder?
A. Locate feeders near cover so that they’re easily accessible, but not too close if there is a risk of predators.
Q. Why are the birds not visiting my feeders?
A. It is not uncommon for birds to take some time to visit new feeders or food that is offered. It can be down to the species in your area and other food resources that are available. Provide some cover for the birds and ensure fresh drinking water is available.
Q. Why are the birds discarding some seeds?
A. Wild birds are selective over what they eat and when. It is not that they do not like it but they might have another source or they don’t need it right now. Never remove or stop feeding these seeds as shortages can happen at any time.
