When buying a bird feeder, be sure to consider how you will hang it. While they are typically built with a hook or loop on the top for hanging, you may find that to hang a bird feeder, you actually need an extra hook.
Where should you put your bird feeders? To attract the widest variety of birds, spread out your bird feeders if you can. Too many feeders right on top of each other, each appealing to different types of birds, creates congestion. This increases conflict as species and personal spaces overlap.
There are many ways to hang suet feeders. But what is the best way? My approach to offering suet to birds evolved over several years. Through a lot of trial and error with feeder type and placement, I’ve learned a lot along the way and where to hang them. My current suet set-up has been working wonderfully for season after season. Now I don’t have to stress over it at all. It just works.
