Hanging bird feeders is a great way to get to know your avian neighbors, brush up on your birding skills, and help birds. However, it is important to make sure that you hang the right type of feeder in the right location as to not harm birds. Hanging bird feeders can cause changes in species composition and can introduce predators, which can negatively impact the birds you are trying to help! When done properly bird feeders will attract birds and keep them safe.
