Window bird feeders

One of the great things about living in the Cayman Islands is all the birds that are attracted by the plants. If you live in an apartment with limited public ‘green’ areas window bird feeders are another way to attract them.

There are plenty of different sizes and styles of bird feeders for you to choose from, each designed for a different type of bird. They are usually made with a one-way mirror so you can see through it to watch the birds but they see a reflection so they’re not scared by having you watching them.

These feeders can be refilled quite easily from the window, so you don’t need to leave the comfort of your home to refill them. This is especially useful if you are on an upper floor. There are various ways to mount them. Some have suction cups and stick to your window, others clip into the window frame. The ones that clip into the window frames are generally a better choice because they are a little more secure, but the suction cups used on bird feeders are better than most, and it’s rare that they lose their grip.

Bird feeders are made from a number of different materials, the most common being cedar and polycarbonate plastic. They are both resistant to the weather, however cedar is nice because it can be painted or decorated however you wish.

Some birds are attracted to certain colours so if you want to attract a specific species, being able to paint your feeder is helpful.
