Tips on Best Backyard Bird Feeders

Including Best Hummingbird Feeders:

Choosing the right wild bird feeders is essential to help your efforts to attract more 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 House 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 and more.


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 bird bath will draw birds who normally would not be attracted to a feeder, like Warblers for instance.





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

Wild birds raise their young in a fashion that is suited to their particular species' 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.

But Finches and many types of Sparrows build their nests on the crooks of tree branches or in bushes.

Turkey Vultures choose a spot on the ground that has the criteria they like and lay their eggs there without even carrying a blade of grass.

And some birds such as Cowbirds lay their eggs in another species carefully constructed nest and let those parents raise and care for their young for them.

There are many different places birds choose to build their homes and just as many different styles of nests that birds construct. But their purpose is the same, to raise their young safely and successfully to adulthood.

But, “Why be careful?” you ask?


All bird supplies, including bird feeders and houses should come with the warning:


“Bird feeding can be addictive!”

Of course it’s not an “addiction” in the negative, destructive sense. It is a healthy, cherished and positive hobby, watching and learning about birds.

A pastime that enhances your life in so many ways. That has certainly been my experience. One that I am now eagerly sharing with you.
