What type of bird feeder should I choose?

Tray feeders, which should have a screened bottom, attract seed-eating feeder birds including pigeons, starlings and house sparrows. Window and tube feeders are popular with sparrows and chickadees. House feeders are attractive to most feeder birds, including finches, jays and cardinals. American goldfinches like nyjer feeders and woodpeckers like suet feeders.

What features should I look for when buying a bird feeder?

An ideal bird feeder is sturdy enough to withstand winter weather and squirrels, easy to keep clean, easy to assemble and tight enough to keep seeds dry.

Where should I place a bird feeder or bird bath?

Place bird feeders and bird baths close to natural shelter such as trees or shrubs. Evergreens are ideal since their thick foliage buffers winter winds. Keep them about 10 feet away from greenery so squirrels and cats can't get close.
