Bird Feeders & Baths - They Are A Great Way To Attract Birds To Your Outdoor Space

Watching the birds fly around and land in your yard can be a fun and relaxing pastime. If you want to attract various kinds of birds around your home, turn to bird feeders and baths. They are selections that will make those flying wonders feel right at home in your yard.

Birds spend the majority of their time looking for two main things: (1) food and (2) water, which is exactly what bird feeders & baths offer. If you provide both in a safe area, you will be rewarded with hour after hour of nature's own reality show playing right outside in your backyard.

The first thing that you need to do before you get the first selection is to check over a bird guide that has an overview of the bird species most prominent in your area.

Remember to hang it in a place that isn't easy for cats or dogs to get to but is very visible from your window. Once you have the food handled, then you need to set up a place for your feathered friends to count on water. Nearby to your food source is great (but not directly under it or you'll have an icky mess to clean up

when bird droppings go into your water). Go for a garden motif and use a rose or floral designed birdbath. When the weather is icy, chip the ice off it or pour water over it during the day to melt any frozen to ensure your feathered friends will have access to water.

You and your kids can watch the birds come and go and you will soon notice certain characteristics that make certain birds individuals in their own right. A sparrow with a few feathers that are always standing up on his back will be easy to pick out from the crowd at your bird feeder, do not be surprised if your kids wind up giving regular visitors to your bird sanctuary names!
