Having a window feeder is a great way to easily watch the wildlife close up. Window feeders are safe for birds as they will focus on the food when flying towards them so there is no danger of them hitting the window. We have a great range of window feeders including the Michigan Feeding House.
Where is the best place to site a Bird feeders
Most common garden birds are fundamentally woodland species, and they do not like straying too far from cover. If the birds feel that they can quickly escape into surrounding vegetation in the event of a predator appearing they are much more likely to use the feeder. Where cats are a problem the ideal location will avoid low-lying cover below the feeder where ground feeding birds may well forage on spilt seed, as this reduces the chances of an ambush. There are people who successfully use window feeders on the upper stories of flats in urban areas, but as a rule, mature gardens with lots of cover will attract more birds than gardens on new developments with minimal cover.
