Affiliate Disclosure & Advertising Information

Site Purpose With Respect to Disclosure

It is always my intention to be open and honest with the visitors to this site.

It is my purpose to provide information which I consider credible, and from my own experience and others, where permission is given, about our experiences with backyard bird feeding.

I endeavor to provide this free information passionately, with the utmost accuracy about how to solve and improve your enjoyment of this excellent hobby of feeding wild birds in your backyard.

Affiliate Disclosure

One of the ways I help visitors to my site is to offer equipment and products for purchase. Some of the items I use myself or deem to be of good value based on my years of experience feeding birds. I would honestly love to own every item, but that is not possible, and my husband is thankful!  😉

The companies that manufacture and sell the recommended products on this site are trustworthy and in good standing in the birding world.

If you click on the links provided for these products and purchase an item, then I stand to earn a commission, but your price does not change, as the seller pays my part. In offering birding equipment in this way, I am called an affiliate of the seller. 

About Amazon On This Site

The seller I use the most on my site, but not exclusively, is Amazon –

“As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.”

Why Amazon?

Amazon provides a large variety of items, is trusted by people, and has excellent customer service.

That statement covers my own experience as an affiliate and a customer too.

How Affiliate Tracking Works

Some of the sellers I am an affiliate for will “drop a cookie” into your visit to my site and then if you return to that seller in a few weeks and make a purchase, I may make a commission from that sale. 

You can find out more about this in my privacy policy.

The cookies that are used in this manner are completely safe, I promise!

Do Affiliate Fees Change My Statements?

Please know that earning a small affiliate fee does not change the information I provide.

If there are drawbacks to an item, I will always say so.

For instance, I offer a variety of Hummingbird feeders as an affiliate, I tell you the benefits of glass over plastic or acrylic. I still offer some plastic and acrylic feeders, but I am honest about the negative aspects of using them.

Advertising On This Site

You will see advertisements on my site and these are provided by MediaVine.

I have largely, no control over what they are displaying, but hopefully, they will be acceptable and helpful to your visit to my site.
