Crows Nest

Birds | Answered on Oct 10, 2016

Backyard birds are birds who visit your backyard. Which birds visit your backyard depends on where you live, the environment, and what foods may be available. Some birds will eat from feeders while, others only eat from the ground or from fruit/flower trees/bushes.

Several years ago, I created a wild bird garden for my mother in S. Florida. I have 20+ feeders, 3 water fountains, and a few trees/plants including, mango tree, hibiscus, berries, and more. We are visited daily by dozens of Monk parakeets aka Quaker Parrots, Blue Crown Parrots, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Doves, Cardinals, and more!

I can answer most questions about backyard birding (i.e.; foods, types of birds) for anyone interested in this hobby!

Well Joyce.

Their brains might be small but they are not un-intelligent.

If food & water has been in a familiar place that would be what you have going for you...

Use it.

They do like to survive. put the cage out where it can be accessed to see if your bird recognizes the opportunity before your squirrels do...

Good luck... patience, be gentle.

Try this pet place website. My cockatiel is particularly fond of the kiwi glazed treats.

It depends on the bird type and size. If it is a big parrot like African greys or macaws I would put 2-3 ladders. I also recommend having ladders and perches in the birds stand so the bird will be able to stretch their wings and do some exercise.

A gram of sunflower seeds weighs exactly one gram or one-thousandth of a kilogram.

If you want the Imperial equivalent there is about 28 grams to the ounce so one gram will equal one twenty-eighth of an ounce.

Measuring such small weights requires a different measuring scale and the apothecary measures are appropriate: the dram is one sixteenth of an ounce.
For rough measure purposes one gram is about a quarter of a dram.

For exact purposes all the conversions can be found by google.

For practical purposes it would be better to measure out one ounce, one half-ounce or one quarter-ounce of seed whichever can be done most accurately and then divide it by eye into 28, 14 or 7 equal portions in order to obtain approximately one gram.
If greater accuracy a chemical balance would be required.

As Larry said, you can pull the chain to spin the wheel in both directions. If you are having trouble with one chain being longer, you can even them out this way. I wouldn't suggest removing the weights.

It's a common problem. I put new bird seed in a baking pan and put it out on the patio for a few days. When the bugs hatch they're out doors.
