    I have assembled a bird feeder (for various birds|) to use .....

    Hello everybody!

    I have assembled a bird feeder (for various birds|) to use every time they feel hungry.

    Is this sentence properly constructed and understandable to you?

    Thank you.

    Remove the unnecessary '(|)' and it's understandable.

    How about when/whenever they feel hungry?

    The parentheses are also wrong.

    Yes, but I don't think the OP got it. How could a pair of parentheses be a typo?
