When placing your bird feeders, allow privacy for the birds.
Avoid areas where there is excessive noise from dogs, driveway
traffic, and slamming doors. Use a location that is as quiet and
undisturbed as possible. Set the feeder back several yards from the
so indoor activities will not scare the birds away. Normally, a
corner of the yard near some shrubs or a fence is ideal. Bushes permit
a social arena where birds may light, preen, search for food and
maintain pecking order. Where your yard meets deciduous trees and
where the shrubbery ends and garden begins all serve as mini-habitats.
These areas offer the interspersing of plants and perches that birds
love to utilize. By taking advantage of little “waste areas” in your
yard you will be able to provide the privacy needed to maintain a
population of feeding station visitors.
