Bird Feeder Checklist

A new year is a great time to review your feeding station and consider if you, your family, and the birds are getting the most out of your efforts. You don’t need every kind of bird feeder, but it’s good to know your options and make sure you have your favorites featured at your feeding station. Even within a category of feeders, hopper feeders are diverse in form and function, and there’s always the option of using a combination feeder to save time and space at your feeding station.

How many different types of feeders can you name? How many different kinds do you have? Do you need to add another feeder to your collection to attract a new group of birds?
