If you want to attract more songbirds to your feeder, feeding sunflower hearts is one of the most effective ways to do so. Songbirds absolutely love sunflower hearts and they are a highly nutritious source of food for them. When birds find a reliable source of food, they will return to it frequently, so filling your feeder with sunflower hearts is a great way to encourage them to come back regularly.
In addition to feeding sunflower hearts, it's important to site your feeder correctly to make sure birds feel safe before they feed. Hang your feeder in a quiet, protected area away from heavy foot or vehicle traffic. Also, make sure to hang your feeder correctly by positioning it at least 18 inches away from any vertical surface. This can be achieved using a long bracket.
Lastly, keeping your feeder clean and germ-free is important to attract and maintain songbirds at your feeder. Regularly clean your feeder with hot water and avoid using soap or detergents that can be abrasive. By following these tips, you will be able to attract more songbirds to your feeder and enjoy watching them feed in your garden or outdoor space.
