Tips on Best Backyard Bird Feeders to Erect, Including Best Hummingbird Feeders:

Choosing the right bird feeder can assist your efforts to attract various types of birds to your backyard. Whether a Hummingbird, Bluebird or Cardinal, is your favorite bird, or you just want any type of bird, I will provide the information necessary to help you populate your garden space with beautiful birds by helping you choose the right feeders.

Your first feathered visitor to your wild bird feeder is a special exhilarating experience. This feeling does not end after the first visitor either, but continues with the second and third...

  • A new type of wild bird you have never seen before at your wild bird feeder! Should I run for my bird identification book or just watch?
  • A young family of finches having their first frolic in your bird bath!
  • Little garden visitors flitting about your hummingbird feeders and even feeding from your hand!

You will be able to find the answers to many questions like these.

What Will Attract Winged Visitors Faster, a Wild Bird Feeder or a Bird Bath?

The answer may surprise you. A bird bath will attract birds easier and faster than a bird feeder?

Plus if you add movement to the water your feathered friends will not be able to resist your invitation. Wild birds like many of their admirers love the sound of water.

And a bath will draw birds who normally would not be attracted to a feeder.

Why Is One Baby Bird Raised in a Bird Nest & Others in a Bird House?

Different species choose to raise their young in a fashion that is suited to their particular preferences and their environment.

Bird houses are another avenue to attract birds for close-up viewing. It is a wonderful experience to watch adult birds care for and raise their young.

Some species like Chickadees, Nuthatches and the Woodpecker family are cavity nesters. They are the ones who will have a look at a bird house you have erected to size-it-up for suitability.
