Billy the Bus BS: Feeding the birds (42) RE: BS: Feeding the birds 07 Nov 04


If you have nectar-feeding birds in your area, try a pot of honey water - honey dissolved in hot water. You'll be able to find technological 'water fountains' at your local pet supply.

Robyn - fantails and swallows are insectivores, so aren't interested in bread or seed. Ummmmm... I'm trying to think of a way to attract mosquitos and snadflies.... Hmm... a UV light may work in the daytime - it does for moreporks (NZ owl) and bats, at night. Don't get one of thos UV 'insect zappers' - we still need the insects most of the time.

cheers - Sam
