What colors are birds attracted to?Featured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis holds true: of all the feeders, the birds enjoyed eating from the red feeder the most.

Bird watching is a common hobby. For young watchers, bird watching is both educational and entertaining. Bird watching can also leads to other interests such as nature trekking and photography. Having a bird sanctuary or feeder at home is a good idea. On top of the above advantages of bird watching, birds help with pest control: they eat insects in your garden.

Also consider

Use different types of feed such as worms, corn and berries, to further test whether birds actually have a preference for the color of the feeder. For example, if you ascertain that the birds prefer a particular type of feed over another, and yet, when placed in the red feeder, the less popular type of feed attracts more birds, that will help corroborate your findings.
