Make your yard a haven for beautiful birds by providing them with an endless supply of food. There are many types of bird feeders, including tray, hopper, tube, suet, and nectar, and each attracts a different type of bird. Place your feeders near bird-attracting greenery and off the ground away from squirrels. Be sure to replace the food frequently to keep it from getting moldy.
