For the Love of Birds

While many people feed birds in the summer, autumn is a great time of year to get started on this new hobby.  Attracting birds to your backyard is a great way to feel like you are living in a fantastic bird sanctuary.  And rest assured, this new hobby will not let you down.  You don't need to be an avid bird-expert to get started on birding.

As birds prepare for their migration south, some of our fine feathered friends appreciate the food you can provide; any extra body fat that birds can pack on may be needed as fuel for their extended trip.  But, not all birds fly south during the cold months.  Some stay the winter.  If you decide to feed birds during the autumn months, make sure that you can feed them through the winter because the birds become dependent on your food source.

There's no great secret to attracting birds.  Just buy a feeder, fill it, and hang it outside.  Chances are, birds will find it in no time.

Feeding basics:  To attract a wide rang of birds offer a variety of feeders.  Suet, fresh fruit, seed blends.
Healthy feeders:  Wash feeders with one part bleach and 9 parts water.
Healthy food: Discard damp, mouldy food.  Store food safely and make sure it is not spoiled.
