Winter is the time when the birds are most in difficulty and cannot find much food: this is your time! Add a manger with a “roof” or a suspended manger; on the pageDIY bird feederwe show you how to easily build one.
In a more secluded area, one must not be missingbirdhouse, perhaps to be fixed to the wall adjacent to the window or in a less frequented position on the terrace.

If you decide to buy a birdhouse, pay attention to the openings. To get an idea of prices and the type of opening, take a look at the images and proposals on theAmazon official pagededicated towooden houses. Why do we invite you to take a look at the houses? For the openings! It is important to choose wooden birdhouses that have a not too wide entrance, otherwise you would end up giving refreshment to less popular poultry species such as pigeons, doves and corvids.
If there are windows on your balcony, we advise you to decorate them with the stencil technique or to glue anti-collision templates: birds in flight have no perception of the glass and could crash on them. Such a pity. The anti-collision shapes are nothing more than dark stickers but it is not necessary to buy specific ones, you can apply any decoration yourself that can make the glass visible.
A water tank should not be missing on the balcony. The tray must be installed in a sunny position: if the manger is your winning card in winter, the tray with water will be in the summer. The water for the birds must be contained in a tray 5 to 7 cm deep. The water will need to be changed often to allow the birds to bathe right on your balcony.
