Cool Bird Feeder Poles images

A few nice bird feeder poles images I found:

I’m a big fella–see!
bird feeder poles

Image by Capt Kodak
The bandit is back! For the record, it’s been a few weeks since I adjusted the bird feeders height and distance to keep the little rascals at bay. But this fella has figured out a path to get to the tall feeder (yes–I’ve moved something around to prevent it now). He was at least eating out of the "critter feeder" first. He came over to the glass door to check me out…

FYI: After much research, I found that you can’t get ride of them, but you can live with them. Secret is they don’t jump–so as long as there’s no hand (paw?) hold within two feet, they won’t reach for it. Problem here was some squirrels earlier in the day moved a couple of things around on the pole and made a path for him…

Best answer:

Answer by The Cat Will Enslave Yahoo!
Yes, they will eat cereal, but try to refrain from giving them anything with sugar in it or chocolate. It’s not good for them and chocolate may kill them. My parrot loves to share my granola cereal with me. It has honey, but no sugar.

Bird Suet I have a bird feeder stand and need bird feeders to go with it?

Question by Milana: I have a bird feeder stand and need bird feeders to go with it?
I have a bird feeder stand with a water bowl, a suet cage, and 3 hooks. I have one bird feeder that looks like this : Any idea what the best bird food to put in there? I also was ganna buy a humming bird feeder and hopper feeder for the stand. Any clue what to put in the hopper feeder to attract more birds. Also any good suet recipes. Thanks ! I live in Charlotte NC, and it’s Fall\Spring right now ( September ) if thats helpful.

Best answer:

Answer by Grandma Laura
Here is a site of -suet recipes for birds – I just went and typed that in and pages popped up.…

You should check out this list of birds of North Carolina so you will know what kind of birds are in your state.

I had to redo this part- google has some problems with reposting this (i went and checked and anyone tapping the post line URL – got tourist junk)- so just type in = what bird seed to chose= and pages come up. This way you can find out what seeds are worthwhile to stock -going by which seeds attract the most different kinds of birds or if you only want to attract certain birds – what feed to put out and which feeders to use-and which seeds are the most nutritious- some seeds are cheap but not nutritious.

Here is a site about bird feeders -that gives you a basic idea of bird feeders

The simplest type of squirrel proof feeder is a tube-like feeder surrounded by a metal cage. These feeders also offer protection from larger and more aggressive birds. Tube seed feeders are primarily made of clear plastic tubes with plastic or metal caps, bases and perches. Hopper bird feeders look like a house and attract a wide range of birds such as finches, cardinals, blue jays, sparrows and titmice.

choose which birds you want to attract and then figure out what they like to eat – to stock your feeders.
Remember to clean all bird stuff regularly. do not put out too much(I did and ended up feeding hundreds after 20 years -that died when i moved- because you should only put enough to supplement – not make them totally dependent).

this is an article about this problem
Prior to the publication of the Wall Street Journal article, Canadian ornithologist Jason Rogers also wrote about the environmental problems associated with the use of bird feeders in the journal Alberta Naturalist.[16] In this article, Rogers explains how the use of bird feeders is inherently fraught with negative impacts and risks such as fostering dependency, altering natural distribution, density, and migration patterns, interfering with ecological processes, causing malnutrition, facilitating the spread of disease, and increasing the risk of death from cats, pesticides, hitting windows, and other causes.

this being like I said – I put out too much and the birds became dependent on the food- and the area was not able to supply the natural food for them. I did not do the research and put out cheap non-nutritional food that i got at walmart- Milo has little nutritional value. My mother altered the migrational pattern of the hummingbirds- and they died when they had no food in the middle of winter.

This one says differently about no change of migrational pattern (which I do not agree) but is really great in explaining what seeds are nutritional and which bird prefers what type of seeds.

Please do not put out hummingbird feeders- My mother did for years and the humming birds started to hang around all winter instead of migrating – then she went on a trip one winter and when she came back there were no humming birds. They are territorial and they stayed and died of starvation in the middle of winter because she left and had nobody stocking the feeders- she did not believe me, but no humming birds ever came back- moral of the story if you want to feed humming birds- okay but bring in the feeders in the fall when they migrate.

Here is a site for humming birds and make your own nectar.

Winter feeding is very much appreciated by many birds that do not migrate- but once you start- you should always remember them -even if you go on a trip (have someone stop by and put out feed and fresh water)- so the birds that depend on you will not starve or get sick from lack of food. The same thing is true of water- put a water heater in the water dish when it starts getting cold- birds really appreciate unfrozen water.
Thank you for caring -and have an enjoyable time watching the birds.

Wally. June 2007. Westminster, Ca. Wally is a scarlet macaw – one of the most strikingly beautiful birds we have worked with. Wally, like most birds, is cautious about who he gets close to and once he decides you’re good enough he is a treasure. He’s not flapping those wings in this picture – he’s displaying them and holding them open.

African Grey Parrot Should I buy an African Grey or Eclectus Parrot?

african grey parrot
by e_monk

Question by August lmagination: Should I buy an African Grey or Eclectus Parrot?
I want a bird that talks, is sociable with humans and is not too noisy. What is better, an African Grey or Eclectus?
If anyone out there has these birds, what has been your experience?

Best answer:

Answer by Bobbie F
Either species will be a grand pet IF it is handfed and handraised. I have had both. The Grey was easy to teach to talk but the Eckie never said a word. Both are snugglers but the Grey is the good talker. Be sure he has a large parrot cage and a playstand away from the cage. And feed him lots of vegies and calcium – in the form of a cuttle bone. He/she will be a lifelong companion. I wish you the best!!

All About Birds Q&A: Bird Subgroups?

Question by RayRay: Bird Subgroups?
What are some bird subgroups, like migrating birds, song birds, etc.

Best answer:

Answer by drophley
All depends on what you’re looking for. Migrating birds and non migrating birds can include the same species (some just don’t travel).

But some of what I think you’re looking for is:
Shorebirds (pelicans, cormorants, gulls, terns, etc)
Pelagic (petrels, shearwaters, albatross, etc)
Waders (herons, egrets, etc)
Waterfowl (ducks, geese, etc)
Songbirds (warblers, sparrows, jays, etc)
Raptors (owls, hawks, falcons, etc)

Those were just off the top of my head, I may be missing some.

Bird Of Paradise Can I divide a Bird of Paradise plant that has gotten too large?

Question by Muttie: Can I divide a Bird of Paradise plant that has gotten too large?
I live in the hot (summer) valley in central California near Fresno, and I have a Bird of Paradise that has gotten too large. Can I successfully divide the plant and transplant part of it to another location? When is the best time of year to do this?

Best answer:

Answer by Sandyspacecase
Hi Muttie,
I live in Southern Ca. close to L.A.
I have a Bird Of Paradise too that had gotten too big. Mine in in a huge pot on the patio. It had gotten so big that it was starting to die, so I had no choice but to split it. I used a very sharp shovel to split the tightly grown root stock and put each into separate pots. Normally I would have waited until fall to do this, but like I said, it was starting to die and I couldn’t allow that to happen as it was my Mothers plant. You need to protect it against transplant shock, so use something like Quick Set which is a transplant shock preventer. Keep it moist until the roots have started to grow. I give mine a little water in the morning and then again in the evening since it has been so hot outside. One more thing, just so you know, the Bird of Paradise plant will not bloom again for three to five years after transplanting.

Bird Feeding Q&A: Describe how you might design a scientific experiment to address this question. What observations would you tr?

Question by pags92: Describe how you might design a scientific experiment to address this question. What observations would you tr?
Suppose you spot two species of birds feeding side by side, eating seeds from the same plant. You begin to wonder whether competition is at work. Describe how you might design a scientific experiment to address this question. What observations would you try to make at the outset? Would you try to manipulate the system to test your hypothesis that the two birds are competing? If so, how?

Best answer:

Answer by Lex Lodge
Could be some difficult things to separate here; like is there another food source they could eat from, or does one bird actually help the other in some way. I have that across the street: a slightly larger bird can break the apart crackers, actually making it easier for the sparrows.
Anyway I guess you could try something like feeding boxes which somehow separate the species by having different size openings.

Bird Cocking his Head (Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher)

Image by AntoGros

Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher

The Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher (Cyornis Tickelliae) is a small passerine bird in the flycatcher family. This is an insectivorous species which breeds in tropical Asia, from the Indian Subcontinent eastwards to Southeast Asia. Its range stretches across all the countries from India to Indonesia. They are blue on the upperparts and the throat and breast are rufous. They are found in dense scrub to forest habitats.

The Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher is about 11–12 cm long. It sits upright and often forages in the undergrowth. The male has the upperparts dark blue and the throat breast and flanks are orange fading into the buffy white belly. The female is duller blue with a brighter blue brow, shoulder, rump and tail.

The metallic song of the bird includes a series of clicks followed by five or six notes that end abruptly. The metallic song consists of short clicks followed by five or six notes resembling that of the White-browed Fantail-flycatcher. Alarm calls include churr and clicking notes.

They feed mainly by capturing insects in flight but their prey include other insects such as termites and earwigs that may be gleaned or picked from the ground.
