Many times people who feed the birds station their largest feeders out in the middle of a yard on immovable poles or posts. Or feeders are just hung on an available tree, where they can´t even be seen from the house. Duncraft offers these tips on how to place feeders so birds can be enjoyed to the fullest.

Often, out of the way feeders go unfilled because it´s easy to forget about a feeder that´s not regularly seen. Other reasons for not filling out of the way feeders could be the weather, such as rain and snow. Rather than let the birds go hungry, Duncraft suggests investing in a few bird feeder poles and hangers that can be used to move the feeders closer to the house for easier filling and better bird viewing.

The time to move feeders and put poles into the ground is in good weather when the ground isn´t frozen. With a little forethought and action, bird watchers can be enjoying beautiful bird views all summer and winter long from the comfort of the house–and filling feeders will be easier than ever!

Bring birds up close to decks and porches with handy deck brackets:

These days, decks and porches are integral parts of a home´s living space. In summer, nothing is nicer than being out on a deck watching the birds up close! Make a deck bird-friendly all year long by using hangers that easily clamp to a deck rail. Some clamp-on hangers offer multiple places to hang feeders, while other single-arm hangers feature a particularly striking feeder. Bird baths are also available that clamp to deck rails. Some even have a tilting feature for easier emptying and cleaning.

Wall-mount feeders outside a window–no ground space needed!

For people with little or no yard space, Duncraft suggests using wall-mount hangers. Wall mount hangers take up very little wall space, but really add impact. Most swivel on their brackets so they can be moved to the most ideal position. These work extremely well outside a kitchen window over a sink, or outside the window of a breakfast nook. Duncraft asks customers to think of the places where they spend a lot of time in the house and think of how pleasurable it would be to watch the birds from that spot!

Use movable poles sunk in the ground to position feeders for best viewing:

For patios, use multi-armed hangers with ground stakes that can be pushed into the ground around a patio or a porch´s seating spaces. Adding a hanging pot of flowers makes the view even more attractive!

Another great place to put a pole and feeder would be at the end of a walkway, or along the side of a driveway. These are areas that are used frequently coming and going, so it´s easy to check the seed level at that time. In summer, a hanging pot of flowers along with the feeder will help beautify the house. And in winter, these areas are usually kept clear so filling feeders won´t require traipsing through feet of snow. Keep seed handy and close by to make filling easy. Use a container that deters mice and other critters from getting into it. With a few new feeders and a couple of versatile poles or hangers, bird lovers can be enjoying birds from windows and decks all year long.
