How to Attract Backyard Birds

Attracting birds is easy. You can start small - secure a feeder in a tree or on the wall, fill it with seeds and sees what arrives. I practically guarantee you will soon become hooked and want to expand the number of species of birds you attract - there are some great resources online to learn all you need but here are one or two tips. - all they want is food and water. Admittedly some are rather fussier than others but you soon learn what individual ones like.

  1. Different types of birds feed in different ways so you probably want to include several types of feeders and feeding stations. Consider a table for birds that like to feed on the ground or anyway on a flat surface; you will want some hanging feeders for birds that don't mind hovering (Hummingbirds) and or who can cling to a feeding post. other birds like finches can feed anywhere - even hanging upside down.
  2. Take a little time to think of where to place your table/feeders. Major considerations are safety - place it where they are protected from predators. near trees and bushes is good to give them places to quickly fit into and also gives them places to perch to scope out the space for stray cats and so on before they go to feed. This is especially important for ground feeding birds although you can buy cages that go over ground feeding tables to protect them. Hang feeders as high as you can.
  3. Take time out to learn which birds like which feed - birdsforever have an excellent table available online --> North American Bird Feeding Chart
  4. Provide water! Water if vital for birds not just to drink but also for washing to keep their feathers in top condition. Try to keep their water clean and fresh.
  5. Keep feeders and tables clean! Use a safe bird cleaning liquid so they are kept safe from chemical poisoning. Keeping them clean is essential to prevent infection from bacteria and disease carry by bacteria.
