i put up a bird feeder about a wk ago. More and more bird have been coming and today they ate all the seeds in one day. Should I just feed them once a wk or every thee days or something? Not sure what to do.

to many birds?
by: holly

"Smiling" there is no such thing as to many birds! Kidding aside I feed them once a day every day. I am thinking this situation will slow down when their regular food regrows.

Feeding Birds
by: Harry Hill

When I feed the birds, I look at it as more or less their breakfast.

So, I put it out and then wait until the next day. I think they need to look around for other sources to keep up their skills to find nature inspired food sources.
