Autumn Bird Care Tips

  • Clean Regularly: Ensure your bird feeders and tables are clean to prevent the spread of disease. Clean them with warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly before refilling.
  • Varied Diet: Offer a variety of bird food to attract different species. Some birds prefer seeds, while others favour suet or mealworms.
  • Fresh Water: Don't forget to provide fresh water for drinking and bathing. Consider a heated bird bath to prevent freezing during colder spells.
  • Placement: Position feeders and houses in a safe and accessible location, away from potential predators.
  • Observation: Enjoy the beauty of birdwatching from a distance, using binoculars if needed, to avoid startling the birds.
