You want to hang your bird feeders so you get maximum viewing enjoyment, and keep birds safe. To begin with, hang the feeders where birds you want to attract hang out. After birds have discovered your feeders, you can move them closer to where you can see them. Clinging birds like chickadees, woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatchers would need feeders hung near tree trunks. The clingers only feeder is a favorite feeder for them. Hummingbird feeders would start above flowering garden, then be moved closer to you. For tree hangers, use plastic coated hangers that don't damage your trees. Yard hooks should be the type to adjust so you can hang the feeder where you need to. They should also come apart, so that you can slip on a squirrel baffle. If you like squirrels, they can be fed elsewhere and give the birds some peace. Get as tall a hook as you can find, so they are safe from squirrels and cats. Feeders should be at least 4-5 feet off the ground. Make sure deck hooks have a swivel; swing hook onto deck to fill, then shift away so the mess isn't on deck. Many different kinds of feeders are made to hang on windows and bring birds in close. Now enjoy your bird viewing. We have many Bird Feeders to choose from.
