Attracting Birds to Your Yard

I thought I would share something pretty basic with everyone today. The concept of a "Feeder Station." Lot's of folks think if they just hang up a feeder, the birds will come. While that may hold true, by creating a Feeding Station, you will attract more birds and a much bigger variety as well. Here's one of mine, and it seems to work very well. It's designed with three different kinds of feeders and a heated water source. I have also incorporated some natural perching features that seem to make everyone more at home. As for food......I use lots of variety aimed at different species. Songbirds really need our help. Habitat is disappearing and neighborhood cats kill thousands of birds every day. Anything we can do to help them out is a good thing. Let's all be good to our birds today.
