Simon King Medusa Feeder Defender – A Bird feeder Protector
Bird Feeder not included.
Designed by Simon King.
Important : to have the desired effect the feeder must be of a standard type because obviously feeders with a wide tray defeat the object of the defender by providing a grab point
The defender was tested over 3 years where mobbing was a problem and provided safe feed zone for small birds
It will not defend against starlings (which need support) or that sized bird .
The Medusa Feeder defender is a Bird Feeder Protector that is perfect for small birds but discourages larger birds (Jackdaws / Rooks / Pigeons Magpies etc). Some bird species, such as these larger birds can clear out a seed feeder in a single morning, leaving nothing for the smaller bird species that visit your garden. It has been designed to work with a wide variety of hanging feeders.
Site the Defender… as you would a hanging bird feeder – away from nearby obstructions such as tree branches or bushes. Then hang your cylindrical seed, nut or fat feeder from the hook on the lower inside lid of the defender.
For the defender to be most effective, ensure the bottom of your feeder does not hang lower than the bottom of the dangling chains.After a short while, the smaller birds that visit your garden will learn to comfortably flit between the hanging chains and soon begin to use them as perches when approaching the feeder within or whilst waiting for their turn to feed. The bars on the top of the Defender also provide a comfortable staging post for small birds to perch and wait their turn. Large birds on the other hand dislike the feeling of the chains on their flight feathers and most will soon give up on trying to feed on the protected feeder. Use a separate Medusa Feeder Defender for each feeder you wish to protect from larger birds.
