Turn Your Yard and Garden into a Paradise for Birds!
Birds in Your Garden
A fleeting glimpse of a single bird brings even the most ordinary landscape to life, so it’s no wonder we take particular comfort in the presence of these beautiful creatures. Your yard or garden doesn’t need to be enormous, it only needs to offer the things birds need and love.
Adding a small birdhouse or two to your garden or backyard is a simple but very effective way to attract birds. A birdhouse offers a place to perch or nest and will be particularly welcome in the winter when there may be little in the way of natural shelter.
Providing a safe and steady source of food will encourage birds to return to your garden again and again. You will not only attract more birds but also contribute to their health by providing them with nutrients they may have difficulty finding on their own.
