Bird food and feeders

Hi there,

One of my favourite past times in Canada was filling up my backyard bird feeder and watching to see what birds would visit.  I wondered if anyone knows of a place to buy a bird feeder and bird food?  I am living in Busan and have checked my Emart and Homeplus but have been unable to find anything.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Kyle

Pet shops? They are everywhere, bunch down in Nampodong.

I'm sure they are definitely available online a search in English finds these rather pricey ones, but I would bet they would be a lot cheaper if you could find out the Korean word.

Thanks a lot.

Bird feeders backhome are actually quite expensive as well..  I guess I will have to find the word for bird feeder :)

 

Thanks!

Re: Bird food and feeders

Thanks to your idea I bought a bird feeder during my current trip back home to England. However, now filling it may be a problem. The one I bought is a 'peanut feeder' but peanuts online are astronimical in price. There are plenty of seeds available though, either mixed or individual types such as sunflower seeds. Although, the majority are sold for domestic caged birds, I would presume that feeding them to wild birds would be ok.

The word for bird food is 새모이
