I share a garden but feed all the wildlife. Robins get food taken if it’s on ground so can I put a low bird feeder up? Any advice on helping these birds useful,
Hi Sam, I find a ground guardian cage is brilliant for keeping larger animals and birds from consuming all the bird food. They are a bit expensive but save you money on bird food in the long run. I prefer this pitched roof type guardian rather than the flat roof type and use a thick piece of butyl heavy duty pond liner (cut to pitch roof shape) to drap over the roof to protect the food from rainfall. Hope this helps. There are also hanging guardian feeders if you prefer.
