Birdhouses: Everything You Need To Know

Category: 

There are a number of things that an amateur birdwatcher needs to know. This includes not just the knowledge about how to place a birdhouse but also about what attracts the birds to a particular birdhouse.

For example, you might have made the best birdhouse in Santa Clarita for the birds to come and live in; however, if you are anxious why birds aren’t flocking toward the birdhouse that you have made for them, don’t be.

There are a number of reasons why your birdhouse might still be empty. Perhaps you haven’t placed it at the right height. Or, it could also be that you have made the entry hole a little Birdhouses: Everything You Need To Knowsmaller than required. In case you think have considered these factors and think that there is not a single flaw in the one that you built or bought, well, there are still other possibilities.

Maybe the house is perfect but its mounting is not. Have you checked whether you are keeping sufficient quantities of food? This is one of the reasons why a number of birds do not occupy even the best birdhouses. Lack of food and water can cause birds to search for other areas where these things are available.

Do not let birds fly away from the window mount birdhouses that you have built for them just because you haven’t placed some food for them.

Be sure to provide enough water and food for the creatures every day and they will love to stay in the abode that you have created and placed on your window or on a tree for them.

When and How

One important consideration is when to feed birds. Take note of one thing – birds are looking for food and water during winter. This is because many places have a large reduction in naturally occurring availability. This is why birds are always searching for places that offer enough food to keep their bodies warm.

It is required that the feeders be set up either in late summer or during early fall in Santa Clarita. If you are not around during this time of the year and have a birdhouse where birds regularly visit, ask a friend or neighbor to assist you by providing food and water in your absence.

As far as ‘how’ bird feeding is concerned, there are a few things about this to remember, too. The first thing is that the feeder should be placed at a height that is comfortable for the birds to access. The next thing to note is that the birds should be given the seeds or food that they prefer eating. At all times, water should be abundantly provided. To know what kind of seeds or food birds like, you should read a thing or two about bird behavior. This will help you choose the appropriate type of food for your birds.

Some seed types that you can feed birds include unsalted sunflower seeds, thistle seeds, raw crushed peanuts, millet, scratch feed and more. Depending on whether the birds in the house are seed-eating or prefer wild bird food, you can pick the food for birds. Last but not the least, quantity should also be considered. What if the bird brings along a few more from its own species? Be sure to consider all variables.
