One may also ask, how long does it take for birds to come to a bird feeder? The Rule of 2s is that it might take 2 seconds, 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days, 2 weeks, even 2 months for birds to use a new feeder! It depends on many things such as feeder placement, the type of feeder, the quality of the food, bird population in your area, weather, predators, and more.
Similarly, you may ask, are bird feeders good for birds?
Well, they aren't visiting your feeders. This means that although feeding birds may not be harmful to the species that use feeders the most, it also isn't helpful to the species that most need our help. But don't take down your feeders in despair.
Will birds find my feeder?
If you have not yet been feeding birds in your backyard, it may take from one day to several months before the birds in your area discover your new feeder. Birds generally find their food by sight. Placing your feeder where it will be visible to them should decrease the time it takes for birds to start feeding.
