How do I keep pigeons away from my bird seed feeders?

Numerous efficient techniques can help deter pigeons from your bird feeders. For instance, consider acquiring a bird feeder cage, which restricts access to smaller birds only. Another approach is to offer foods that pigeons tend to avoid, like those devoid of wheat, along with options like peanuts, mealworms, and seed-rich blends.

Do I need a bird seed feeder to feed birds? 

The succinct answer is no, you don't necessarily require a bird feeder to provide nourishment for birds. You can utilise household items like a cereal bowl for dispensing seeds or simply scatter them on the ground. However, this approach comes with several potential drawbacks, including the possibility of not attracting certain bird species like finches and nuthatches who prefer elevated feeders. It may also result in a messy garden with seed shells strewn about, quicker seed spoilage in wet weather conditions, and the risk of drawing in other animals, such as rats and pests, which could lead to contamination.

How can I keep bird mess to a minimum?  

A way of dealing with this would be to place any type of tray on the floor underneath the feeder, but in doing so this could attract ground pests to the tray. The best option is to have a tray attached to your feeder such as our Ring-Pull Feeder Tray. A good option to go with this is a no mess mix such as our Huskfree Advance Bird Food.

Bird Seed Feeders FAQs

Where should I put seed feeders?  

When considering where to hang a bird feeder in your garden, it's essential to think about a few key factors. Firstly, ensure the feeder is situated a good 10-12 feet from structures or bushes that might harbour predators like cats. For your own viewing pleasure, choose a spot visible from inside your house, perhaps near a window. It's also wise to shield the feeder from harsh weather conditions, though placing it too close to trees can provide an ambush point for predators. Birds prefer a bit of natural cover, so near some shrubs or trees is ideal, but avoid overly busy areas as birds may be deterred by too much activity. Lastly, for ease of maintenance, ensure the feeder is accessible for regular cleaning and topping up, as this will keep your feathered visitors healthy and returning for more.

How often should I clean my seed feeders? 

Make it a regular practice to clean your bird feeders every two weeks, and certainly no longer than a month. Neglecting this important task can promote the spread of diseases among our feathered friends, making it a critical reminder to mark on your calendar. Explore our Bird Feeder & Table Cleaning Pack, designed specifically for maintaining the cleanliness of your bird feeders and tables.

Why aren’t birds coming to my bird feeder? 

Several factors could explain why birds aren't frequenting your feeders. These may include insufficient or inconsistent food availability, the potential presence of mouldy or stale seeds, and the feeder's placement, which can significantly affect bird activity. These factors are all within your control to address. Additionally, keep in mind that the migratory patterns of these feathered companions might also play a role.
