Positioning of bird feeders

Make sure that a feeder is far away from cat crouching areas. Some birds like to forage for the food that has fallen on the ground.

It can help a lot to.improve the safety of yhe birds by cutting the foliage of bushes and scrubs around the the ground where cats can hide in or behind. Make it a rule to cut them.in the way that ‘if I can see a cat clearly clearly so can a birds’.
