They also allow you to move your feeding area around your garden to get the best view of all the activities. But with so many different bird feeding station options, what is best for you?
If you have just begun feeding birds or are looking to get started, you may wonder what is best to feed them. To attract a wide variety of birds to your garden, you should aim to provide seasonal mixtures and a range of straight foods such as peanuts and niger. You can leave these out or offer them in the specific mixture, peanut or niger feeders. Finding places within your garden to host all these feeders may be an issue, especially if you want visibility of your new visitors. And this is where bird feeding stations are an excellent idea! You can place your bird feeding station on your lawn or have it on a solid surface such as a patio or decking if you use our patio base. With that in mind, our Everyday Feeding Station is a great place to start if you want to introduce a bird feeding station to your garden.
The Everyday Feeding Station can hold two feeders of your choice and has a seed tray and water dish. The combination of these food offerings, water, and an open seed tray will put you in the best position to attract birds to your garden! If you’d like to offer even more feeders, our Classic Bird Station has an extra bracket and a larger seed and water tray. With a slightly lower bracket, the Classic Bird Station ensures that all birds have space and comfort to feed. Both these bird stations are simple to assemble, and you can set them at a height that suits you. Simply stake your station in your lawn, fill your feeders up and wait for the influx of birds to come to you!
For bird-feeding aficionados, you might be considering upgrading your bird-feeding apparatus to increase the activity at your feeders. You may also want one that is aesthetically pleasing and will blend in with the rest of your garden. If this sounds like you, we have two feeding stations that will delight your birds and impress you!
Our Nut n Seed Station holds five feeders and comes with a peanut feeder, seed feeder and water tray so that you can provide a full bird buffet! Our Select Bird Feeding Station similarly boasts brackets to hold five feeders with an extra-large water dish and seed tray whilst featuring a decorative finial. Both bird-feeding stations are perfect for those a little further in their bird-feeding journey. We recommend our Nut n Seed Station for those who want an extra peanut feeder/seed feeder alongside their feeding station. And our Select Bird Feeding Station is for those who may already have preferred hanging feeders they wish to use.
Whatever option you choose, the sleek black design of both bird stations makes them blend seamlessly into the backdrop of your garden and allows for hours of unobtrusive bird watching! Like our other bird stations, they are compatible with our heavy-duty patio base.
As with any feeder, particularly when you have multiple in one area, clean your feeders regularly, get into every nook and cranny with suitable tools and consider adding helpful products that can keep your bird feeder cleaner for longer.
If you have recently installed a nesting box in your garden, you might be disappointed when birds aren’t taking advantage of your kind gesture and, so far, are not using your bird house. But don’t worry, as there are several reasons why birds might not be using your nesting boxes, and it’s pretty common for them not to do so, or at least not move in straight away!
Bird feeding stations are a great way to serve a variety of treats to suit a range of different wild garden birds at the same time. And since they are free-standing, you can set one up in your garden, hang multiple bird feeders from it, and then sit back and watch the feasting begin.
