CASINA FEEDER arises from the need to create a small size feeder for small birds.
We built it so that the food remains protected from the elements thanks to the two-water roof that surmounts the opening for placing the food. Under the base we have inserted a small hook to hang the ball of fat for the tits. The Casina manger is decorated with always different combinations and patterns. They are built in marine plywood and treated with the best finishes to withstand the eternal. If you want to attract the greenfinch and watch it eat, we recommend that you also include the pine nuts in the manger.
INFORMATION FOR USE
Most birds are divided into insectivores and granivores. The former have a diet based on the consumption of larvae, caterpillars and insects, while the latter feed on seeds.
During the winter these foods are scarce so the birds are forced to adapt to wild berries and small fruits that are not always available. To find them they have to travel long distances and because of the cold they consume a lot of energy.
For these reasons it is important to offer them food by setting up a manger on the terrace or in the garden. Place it high enough so that it cannot be reached by cats, in a quiet area preferably visible from the window, so you can do birdgardening and observe them from a distance as they come and go.
eat. Always keep it clean and change the food every three days.
It may take several weeks to overcome the birds’ distrust of an unknown object so the sooner we install the manger, the sooner they will approach with confidence.
Treating the manger, once a year, with a final coat of outdoor paint, prolongs its resistance to bad weather.
