Did you know that Wild Bird Feeding is among the most popular hobbies in the united states?
Summer is an excellent time to feed your feathered friends in your lawn! You get to see them in full plume, filling your yard with action, and even see them raise their families. It is fun for all ages! All you have to get started is a birdfeeder and bird seed.
Selecting a Bird Feeder
There are so many forms of wild birdfeeders: Earth, Hanging, Nectar, Hopper, Suet, Tube and Platform, to name a few. But if you are new to wild bird feeding. I suggest that you begin with a reasonable seed feeder and a watering well. Seed feeders tend to draw more kinds of birds compared to other feeders.
If you would like to begin bird feeding on a budget, try the Gadjit Soda Bottle Bird Feeder Kits. The kits are cheap and attach to otherwise discarded plastic soda bottles. There’s also a Watering Well from the line to give a watering source for the birds.
Maintain your birdfeeders in shaded locations. This will enable the birds to stay cool and minimize seed spoilage.
1. If you wish to lure wild birds into your yard… keep cats inside. With many birds nesting throughout the Summer time, you need to protect the baby birds that might be just out of the nest.
2. Minimize birds hitting your windows by placing feeders away from windows and using anti-reflective decals on the windows.
3. Do not forget the water! So as to create a backyard habitat for our flying friends, make certain to supply a supply of water for them.
