    Which Garden Birds are Ground Feeders

    What Food is Best for Bird Ground Feeders and Cages

    It is important to feed ground feeding birds bird food that is nutritionally beneficial and to cater to a whole range of these birds, it is great if you have a whole range of all the food for birds.

    A quality mix of seeds including sunflower hearts, cracked corn and millet is a great way to attract a variety of birds to your ground feeder.

    During the colder months, add a high energy option such as suet cakes or suet pellets. This will be especially attractive to insect eating birds and will help them survive throughout the winter.

    Live or dried mealworms are a really great source of protein, so they are a favourite amongst many birds including Robins.

    How to Protect Ground Feeding Birds from predators

    Install one of our ground feeder cages around your feeding station. This creates a physical barrier between the ground feeding birds and predators such as domestic cats. These cages allow access to smaller birds but keep out larger predators.

    The Best Place to Put A Ground Feeder

    Place the ground feeder in an open area of your yard or garden with clear lines of sight. This allows birds to spot potential predators and provides them with a sense of security while feeding.

    While an open area is important, ensure that there is nearby natural cover such as shrubs, bushes, or trees. This gives birds a place to retreat to if they feel threatened while feeding. However, avoid placing the feeder directly under dense vegetation or near thick bushes, as these areas can conceal predators and make it easier for them to ambush unsuspecting birds.
