Attract Birds to Your Backyard

Fall is the perfect time to welcome birds to your backyard. Cardinals, chickadess, blue jays, and more will flock your yard daily if you provide these three basic needs.

-All kinds of birds will flock to your yard daily if you provide these 3 basic needs. To attract the largest variety of birds, offer several kinds of foods. Cardinals will feast on sunflower seeds, Chickadees favor black oil sunflower seeds, and Blue Jays just can't resist shelled peanuts. If you wanna keep it simple, a good quality bird seed mix will satisfy most birds. And don't forget about the feeding station. This one combines the four basic feeder types to attract many birds. There are two tubes for small and large seeds. A hopper feeder, a suet feeder, and a platform feeder. Shelter is a key factor too. Birds are more likely to linger in your yard between meals if you provide protective places to rest. Evergreen trees and shrubs and favorite hiding places. So are brush piles. It's important to provide constant access to fresh water in a backyard bird habitat. This is critical during the winter when most natural sources are frozen. There are many heated bird bath options available or you can use a small heater to keep water from freezing an irregular bird bath. By providing for these 3 basic needs, food, shelter, and water, birds will flock to your backyard.
