Which bird table is right for your garden?
Not sure which bird table will suit your backyard? We compare two of the most popular styles - metal vs wooden bird table to help you make up your mind. While wooden bird tables have a list of advantages including durability and aesthetic appeal, metal bird tables are typically easier to maintain, making them well worth considering. Not to mention, metal bird tables often come with sculpted designs that ensure they're an attractive feature in your garden as well as a feeding station for a range of wild birds. However, they can sometimes come with sharp edges that can be dangerous to birds, so it's important to ensure any bird table that catches your eye is both safe and stable.
Are bird tables rat and squirrel-proof?
No, not all bird tables are squirrel-proof - especially those that are open, large in size, and made from rough wood (as this makes them easier to climb). In order to prevent these pets from eating all the bird treats, you should opt for a bird table with a smooth posts that are difficult for both squirrels and cats to climb. Rats, on the other hand, typically won't be attracted to bird food, so you can rest assured that introducing a bird table to your garden won't encourage an unwanted rodent infestation. If you want to attract smaller birds instead of the generic pigeon, opt for a smaller bird table with a roof that'll prevent larger birds from eating all the bird food.
Where should you place a bird table?
In order to attract the most birds to your table, the bird table should be positioned in a sheltered area - a spot where any harsh and direct sunlight, wind, and showers won't prevent your feathered friends from paying you a visit. This will help them to feel safer away from the view of passing predators. Plus, you should also ensure that your bird table is away from areas of human activity like pathways and outdoor furniture as this can deter them from seeking food from your bird table. By limiting human traffic as much as possible, you can encourage birds to see your backyard as a safe and relaxing spot to dine al fresco!
