Fish gifts and bird gifts are favourites of animal lovers. Anything that reminds them of these beautiful little creatures will be appreciated, whether it’s a fun mug or a bird feeder. So if you need to buy a gift for an animal lover, you can shop with confidence among these fish and bird presents.
Why Is A Fish Tank Such A Good Gift?
Fish are undoubtedly one of the most popular pets. They’re right up there with puppies and kittens. One reason fish are such a popular pet is they’re easier to care for (especially if you have the above self cleaning fish tank). Another reason they’re so loved, is the same reason people love wild birds. They’re beautiful. While you can’t cuddle up to your pet fish, they’re beautiful to watch swim happily around their tank.
Trick Question: How Do You Clean A Fish Tank?
It doesn’t matter!!! Not when you have a self cleaning fish tank like the one above. When you have a fish tank that cleans itself, all you need to worry about are the decorations.
What Birds Will Wild Bird Feeders Australia Bring To Your Window?
There are so many native wild birds in Australia that could come and visit your bird feeder. Just how many? 898. Really. There’re close to 1000 different birds in Australia. But which are the most common? Which are most likely to visit you and your wild bird feeders? Well, it depends on where you live and what time of year it is, but some wild birds are certainly more common than others.
Parrots, such as lorikeets and cockatoos are a common and favourite category of birds. Their bright colours are adored by bird watchers young and old. Waterbirds such as pelicans, ducks, gulls, and herons are popular by the coast. In contrast, blackbirds like magpies and ravens seem to be everywhere. Small birds like robins, wrens, and honeyeaters also visit many wild bird feeders, and are some of the most beloved visitors. One group of birds that probably won’t stop by your wild bird feeds are the large birds and birds of prey, like eagles, and owls. And you certainly won’t be seeing an emu.
How Do I Feed Birds With My Wild Bird Feeders?
Firstly, recognise you’re giving them a snack - not a whole meal. Birds don’t need too much, and they will find plenty naturally. So don’t overfill your bird feeder. They’re coming for a quick snack and to say hello, just as if you were stopping by the servo for a quick snack.
Secondly, keep your wild bird feeders clean. You eat from a clean plate, so why not our beautiful native birds?
Thirdly, keep it simple and unprocessed. Avoiding salt, sugar, and bread is a good start. Seeds and bird feed you buy in store is best. The birds will thank you for it and keep coming back to say hi.
Finally, mix up what you feed them. You don’t want to eat the same thing every day, and neither do birds. So change your bird menu up now and then.
Whether it’s fish or bird related, you’re sure to find some awesome gifts.
