Tips for Buying Suet Feeders
Remember Type of Suet is Important: The type of suet you choose is just as important as the type of feeder you choose, as different birds are attracted the most to different types of foods.
Read User Reviews With a Grain of Salt: It is always a good idea to read users reviews, especially when purchasing something online. However, keep in mind that experiences with bird feeders will greatly vary from one person to the next. Some areas have lots of birds, other areas may have problems with common pests such as squirrels or starlings.
Less is More: While there are a number of elaborate suet feeders, most people will find that even the most basic of a suet feeder cage is plenty enough to satisfy the birds.
