I bought 2 different bird feeders and they don’t seem to know how to land on the perch and feed.
They look and look then fly away. I wonder if I bought the wrong designed feeder?
We are very sorry that you are not seeing birds on your new feeder. Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them days or even weeks to use a new feeder. There is something new in the yard that they are not used to, and they need to warm up to it first. We would suggest temporarily removing other feeders in the area so that the birds must use the new one. Temporarily placing the feeder near a shrub or tree where birds will feel safe can also encourage them to explore the new feeder.
We also recommend checking our Bird ID page to see which seed and feeder style the birds in your region prefer.
Thank you for the bird seed suggestion. I will definitely check that out. As a follow up as I was reading your other suggestions my husband tapped me on the shoulder and pointed his finger and there they were. A few birds feeding the small house feeder. I’m so excited.
Hello, everyone. I see you are fond of birds and bird feeders. Though I prefer DIY feeders, I would still recommend you to buy squirrel proof bird feeder that is available across the web. It is important to protect your feeder from those animals. Nice protection is hard to craft.
