SONGBIRD SURVIVAL

I GET SO MANY READERS WHO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH PREDATOR BIRDS DECIMATING THE SONGBIRDS IN THEIR GARDEN AREA

 

SO MANY PEOPLE TRY TO HELP THESE DEFENCELESS SONGBIRDS

 

DECLINE IN SONGBIRD NUMBERS DUE TO PREDATION IS NEVER MENTIONED

A magpie is trying its hardest to kill my last remaining baby blackbird….

 

This goes on all the time, yet it never seems to be mentioned when there is talk about the decline in garden birds.  Read the comment below –

A magpie is trying its hardest to kill my last remaining baby blackbird…. Ive saved it once when the magpie dropped it but it’s so distressing to watch.

Why not join Songbird Survival.  They say –

Rising levels of uncontrolled predation are ignored

Existing research is out of date and flawed

Something has to be done

  New High-Quality research is urgently needed

 

A TIP TO KEEP SQUIRRELS FROM FEEDERS

Hi All This is the first time I have seen this site,

It is less formal than the other sites I have been to.

Anyway, a tip to keep squirrels from the feeders I used to have several squirrels visit the bird feeders and with the resultant damage increasing, I decided to put a stop to this.

The squirrel proof feeders are fine, but it you have 10 or 20 they can be not very cost effective. So putting my thinking cap on, I tried a number of things, but the best I have found is using twine to hang the feeders from.

The squirrels rely on something solid to support themselves on, so using twine to hang the feeders on takes away the support and no more damage (or visitations now) Hope this helps

Thank You for a lovely site Regards Hayden
