How to Create a Backyard Bird Feeding Station

Bird Feeding Station

Your backyard is your safe haven. It’s your place to relax, a place to get away from it all.

With our exclusive, patented Advanced Pole System® (APS), you can create the ultimate station that will attract the birds to your backyard.

Be sure to place your feeding station in a location that helps prevent window strikes and/or keeps squirrels off your feeders.

Window Strike Zone: To see birds up close, place your setup no more than three feet away from your window.

This will decrease the likelihood of birds injuring themselves if they do hit your window. Otherwise, place your setup no less than ten feet away.

Squirrel-proof Zone: Place your baffled station at least ten feet away from other objects that squirrels can jump from to make it unreachable.

Creating a backyard bird feeding station takes no time at all. In fact, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Plant It

Start your custom APS bird feeding station by twisting the 4-foot Base Pole (denoted as (a) in the picture) into the ground.

Then slide the Stabilizer (b) onto the Base Pole and secure it into the ground to keep your station looking great and standing straight.

2. Extend It

Next, place an APS Extension Pole (c) on the Base Pole. Then simply add a Double Crook Arm (d), an EZ-Attach™ Crook Arm (e) and an EZ-Attach Decorative Branch Perch (f).

Our EZ-Attach design makes adding accessories to an APS setup a snap. Just slip the EZ-Attach unit on an extension pole and pull down to secure.

3. Accessorize It

Top your feeding station with one of our many finials (g). If you have squirrels or raccoons that would become a nuisance at your new feeding station, be sure to add a squirrel or raccoon baffle (h). Finally, fill and add your feeders.

Save it for Later

Did you know that some birds "cache" or save,
their food for later?

For the past several years, our partners at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have used lightweight transponder tags to track the feeding behavior of individual birds. 

The research shows that during peak caching season, an individual bird may visit the same feeder up to 200 times per day, hiding their food for later. 

Come see us for the best caching foods to fill your feeders and enjoy the show.
