Three Ways To Attract 1)Install a Bird Feeder Outside In Your Yard You may need to install several feeders to cater to the variety of your local birds. Each specie has its own food requirements. Many birds do not feed at feeders at all. Some feed on berries while others feed on worms or bugs in dead tree bark. Be sure to guard against squirrels, etc. from raiding the feeder. Bird feeders can be mounted or hung.
2) Install A Bird House Bird houses can be home-made or purchased ready-made. Each house will only provide housing for one specie as a general rule. Many birds will not nest in a house. The birds will only occupy the house during nesting or reproduction. Once the fledglings are able to fly, the house will be vacated. It is fun to watch the babies grow.
3) Use A Bird Bath The most efficient way to attract birds is to use a bird bath. All birds need water. No feeders to fill everyday, no seed to buy. Just a spray of your hose everyday to clean and fill. Flowers can be planted around the bath and your feathered friends will really appreciate your efforts. It is a one-time investment which will really reap you rewards.
Instead of a feeder, throw some seed around the base of your bird bath. Make your own bird bath by hanging a bucket of water with a hole punched in it over a shallow pan. The sound of the dripping water will lure birds
