Coolness of the New Quad Suet Feeder August 03 2017
Get fruit, nesting material and suet all in one conveniently mod bird feeder that lets lots of birds dine on the inside or outside... except when you're standing there taking a picture!
The Quad is actually a multi-use feeder with great versatility. Sturdy construction and innovative design offers year-round use to keep feathered friends a-flocking to your place!
Adding fruit in summer attracts vivid migratory birds like orioles and tanagers, while nesting materials in early spring entices resident birds to nest and raise their families... whether they use birdhouses or not. Bluebirds, house finches, goldfinches, cardinals and others even nest through the summer.
Suet may be offered year-round as the "doughs" or no-melt varieties and popular fruit & bug blocks are made for warm-weather feeding. There's no lard in the recipes which often turns rancid in heat. Rainy day idea: make your own suet and store it in the freezer for use down the road.
By offering birds more than just plain ol' birdseed, you'll be seeing new species, new colors and hearing new songs! With migrations in spring and fall especially, more options will attract more birds.
Don't forget the birdbath (or two) as fresh water is the absolute easiest way to entice feathered friends. Dreading the thought of stagnant water and mosquitoes? No worries! Options abound for adding moving water to your bird bath.
You can go wish solar, electric, battery-powered or something run from the hose/spigot. Fountains, misters, drippers, wigglers and other bird bath accessories exist to tackle the problem of stagnant water and mosquitoes laying eggs! Plus moving water really does pique a birds' interest.
Multi-use bird feeders are a great option (especially inexpensive sturdy ones) if you're just getting started with backyard birds and habitat. You're able to change it up and see who visits? Learn what birds prefer what and of course... what they may not like as well. It's all part of discovering the great hobby of backyard birding!
