Birds need to feel safe from predators and away from open, noisy areas with people walking past. Feeders should be hung at eye level or a little higher, and out of the reach of jumping squirrels. Also avoid placing your feeder in a cat ambush area - these include fences, trees and bushes in which cats can hide. Some birds prefer to feed on the ground and feeders are also available for these species.
