How long will it take birds to find a new feeder or a feeder you have moved? And will they find the feeder at all? Don’t worry. They probably will, but you need to allow a little time. Here is what I’ve learned about adding or moving bird feeders in my yard.
When you feed birds in a big way year-round like I do, you find there is no perfect year-round arrangement of bird feeders. Sometimes you need to reassess things and move a feeder.
The bird population in the yard is not stagnant. Some birds stick around with a fairly predictable daily schedule. Others are only here for a season and then migrate out again. Some stop by for a day or two and move on. And yet more discover the bird feeder buffet and become new regulars.
Some changes in the bird population don’t make a big impact, while others change the whole dynamic of the yard. That is when I find myself moving feeders around again to find the perfect setup for the new situation.
