Attract birds with a wild bird feeder

December 6th, 2008

It is not really difficult getting birds to your yard. Once you provide birds with birdhouses, bird feeders, and water, the next most important thing will be patience.

Sometimes it can take some time to get birds to make regular visits to your yard.

Once the birds have found your birdhouses and bird feeders, they will need to make sure it is safe.

Once you gain the birds confidence, you will have birds making regular visits.

Remember also that birds are attracted to natural surroundings, such as trees, brush piles dead limbs, and even weeds.

As you start attracting birds to your garden, you can get familiar with them.

As your bird hobby increases, you can learn how to attract the kind of birds you want in your garden.

You will also be able to learn more about the birds diet you are trying to attract, and duplicate their natural food as much as possible.

Having separate bird feeders with diffrent food you can determine the diffrent variety of birds and the food they eat. 

With several birdhouses and bird feeders placed in good locations you are sure to attract a variety of birds to your yard.

Wild bird feeder location

December 6th, 2008
Placing your wild bird feeders in the right location will determine how many birds you attract. If your feeder is not getting to much attention try a better location.
A good location will have plenty of sunshine in the day. Finding a bright area will be an ideal location.
Birds are attracted to trees and shrubs. Having your feeder near trees and shrubs will allow birds to be safer from predators while the birds feed. Place the bird feeder away from spots where a predator can hide. Also look for an area that does not get to much wind.

Make sure you have placed it in an area you can see and enjoy the bird activity.

Remember also you will need to refill and clean feeders. Avoid placing them to high, make sure they will be easy to get to.
