Excellent Bird Feeders With Tray 7 Vacation Bird Feeder With Catch Tray Wild Bird Feeders Gardman
I can't remember how many birds you have. In my cages with only 2 birds, the vacation-type feeder doesn't even need to be refilled in a week. The hull drawer may get full, so if grandma could empty the hull drawer, that will let the good seed continue to fall down. If you are using a gravity feeder that doesn't have a hull drawer, even better, as the hulls will fall on down to the floor.
My husband and I have been feeding birds for years. We maintain our feeders, cleaning and disinfecting them and we pay to have our feeders filled when we are away on vacation. Our yard is also a certified NWF habitat so our gardens, trees and pond provide the natural food and habitat for the birds, the feeders are supplemental and we believe help to maintain our feathered friends in harsh winters. We purchase our seed locally grown without chemicals. We feed everything from Wrens to Crows and even have a female wild turkey that eats off our front step! It’s hard to believe this could be harmful to the birds. Our feeders allow us to enjoy and respect wildlife. Perhaps it’s a give back for taking so much of the natural habitat from the animals.

Unless a bird is sick or debilitated, it can use its wings (or legs) to range far and wide in search of food. Birds that cannot move in search of food are likely doomed to perish anyway, which is part of the natural scheme of things. So when you're going away on vacation for two weeks in the middle of a cold, snowy spell, it's nice if you can arrange for a neighbor to keep your feeders filled. Most serious backyard bird watchers wouldn't think of letting their feeders go empty. But if it happens while you're gone, as has happened to me, realize that your birds will not starve, they will just go somewhere else to find food. When you return, you may have to work to lure them back!I sometimes forget to refill my feeder. Are the birds going hungry as a result? Birds are pretty adaptable to change. If you go on vacation and forget to refill your feeder, they’ll probably just head to your neighbor’s house. However, in the winter you’ll need to be especially mindful. Feeders normally provide supplemental sources of food. But some birds such as chickadees, sparrows or finches are seed eaters and may become more reliant on your feeder in particularly bad weather (ex. blizzards or ice storms).
