Should birdwatchers feed the birds?

Monday, 26th May 2014

The answer is of course “yes”; but I am constantly amazed and disappointed that many of them don’t. It is almost as if some “serious” birdwatchers – “twitchers” even – think that bird feeding is sort of beneath them. A bit soppy perhaps.
Well, I reckon they should have their binoculars confiscated!

The fact is that bird feeding is making a great contribution to the welfare of birds. Arguably gardens are one of the few habitats where birds can and do flourish these days.
 

To put it simply, anyone who enjoys watching birds “should” contribute to their welfare, and feeding is one of the most practical and important ways to do that.

So if you don’t: do start now. Please!
