Attracting Birds

Mary Butler asked 14 years ago

I have bird feeders in my garden (a built up area) but no birds (except magpies) are coming to feed.Is there anything else I can put up to attract small birds? My garden is very small. (Feeders have seeds, fatballs, and nuts).

Magpies tend to bully the smaller birds. It you put the feeders near or even into more dense bushes, the small birds have better escape routes and the bigger birds have more difficulty getting at the food.
