Automatic wild bird feeding

Posted by British Bird Food 12/06/2014 0 Comment(s)
At this time of year, as we approach the holiday season and are amongst the busiest time for the fledglings and adult wild bird feeding. Many people who care regularly for their wild birds ask questions about how they can keep the bird population happy whilst they are away on holiday. One answer is the Auto feeder from Wingscapes, at £124.95, it may sound expensive, but when you break down the costs and benefits it really does represent excellent value for money. With Auto Feeder you don't waste any seed, the birds get used to the times it operates and literally queue up to feed. So they clear up every morsel, and if they don't you can control the amount of wild bird food that you dispense with each batch, so this means you can achieve maximum efficiency with minimal waste bird food. Auto Feeder dispenses exact amounts of bird food at the same time each day, the birds get so used to the time it is available that they all flock to your feeder, this results in a great 'show' for you and you know exactly what time it is going to happen - so you don't have to sit around for hours to see your favourite birds - just like switching on the TV! If you are going away for a while, the Auto Feeder holds a large amount of seed and will last for several weeks, for example if you dispensed 1.5 ounces per day it would last for 149 days! or if your dispensed 6 ounces it would last 37 days. The Auto Feeder is Squirrel proof and guaranteed against Squirrel damage for two years. It is easy to programme and takes 4 AA batteries that last for over a year, so no cables are involved. It will dispense seed up to four times per day and the amount of seed is controlled by a timer from 1 to 20 seconds for dispensing. The Auto Feeder is quite a substantial feeder it weighs three and a half pounds (empty) so you do need a good bird feeding station to support it with. Go on - treat yourself and your birds:)
