Birds and Extreme Sports!

Its a well known fact that sparrows and other small birds are huge fans of extreme sports. So it may not come to you as a surprise that at last, someone has finally catered to these little creatures’ desire to enjoy their favourite sport and eat at the same time.

The Bungee Bird Feeder is the talk of bird land right now and sparrows everywhere are on the look out to see who has them hanging in their backyards or off their balconies.

Made entirely from bird seed, the Bungee Bird Feeder is probably the coolest and oddest looking accessory for the garden around. It immediately becomes the talking point of the garden as it dives from nearby trees and waits for passing feather-bearing bi-peds.

The feeder is made up of a mixture of different seeds. Red and Yellow Broomcorn Millet make up the body or skeleton of the feeder in a husk type structure. The outer surface of the feeder is then made from a coating of seeds which are fixed to the feeder using a glucose mix. The figure has its arms outstretched and actually does look like a mini-person bungee jumping. The resulting effect is quite startling and eye-catching. The Bungee Feeder is sturdy and comes in a well-presented blister pack together with its own bungee chord to allow you to suspend it from wherever you want.

Don’t expect birds to come to it straight away though. This is not what a bird normally recognizes as a feeder, but when eventually they do realize that this is a feeding spot, they come in droves, or rather, flocks… If you’re looking for something a bit original for your garden, then look no further!

This item was designed in the UK and is available, mostly online, for purchase.

All Bluebird Houses and Bird Feeders are Not the Same! Select the Right Model!

Getting bluebirds in your home can be very easy with the right style of bluebird feeder or bluebird house! All birds are not always attracted to the same model of structures. While there is oftentimes overlap, where several types of birds may share an individual bird feeder or a particular style of bird house, it is important to make sure the bird of your choice, in this case the bluebird, has the correct structure to want to stay around your yard. These bluebirds are so beautiful and full of life that they will offer you lots of entertainment every hour.

Not all birds like feeders. For example, an owl or a hawk will not be attracted to a bluebird feeder. These animals do not obtain the right lifestyle to have a use for a typical feeder. To begin with these birds don’t eat the same kind of food as a beautiful bluebird. Next, even if they did eat the same food, the bluebird feeder would be too little for their large bodies to perch on its food tray. The same is also true for bird houses. While an owl needs to obtain his own house, the house made for a bluebird is far too small for him. The same holds true for the bluebird trying to use the owl’s house. The house is way too large for his needs. Even if a bluebird wanted to live in the owl’s house, the bluebird would not like to be startled by an owl wanting to take over his home. These situations are extremely different, but it gets the topic across that birds will be brought to the house or feeder that accommodates their lifestyle and size.

Another factor is that the correct style of feeder must properly hold the kind of food being offered to the bird. The feeding tray that holds the seeds must not be too deep or shallow. A fantastic bluebird feeder, like the Stovall 11FH Bluebird Feeder with Hanging Chain, has an inside area, like a room with glass side walls, where the bluebird goes to eat. This stops the seed from falling out and the food remains very dry in the rain. In addition, the holes to the glass room are large enough to let the bluebirds enter but small enough to not allow the larger birds. This model is a very nice cedarwood blue bird feeder

A Bluebird feeder is available in many different models. Some models hang from branches, others secure to a pole and most all can be secured to the top of a fence. A few models allow food to be offered in different manners. The Birds Choice Supper Dome Seed. Suet. and Mealworm Bird Feeder gives three ways to offer food; suet, seed and mealworms. This is a great looking and very functional bluebird feeder feeder. This is one of the best examples that puts together good looks with functionality!

Like people, birds desire the things that take care of needs. Getting the right house and feeder will provide the correct birds!
