Three Ways to Make Your Yard a Welcome Home for Birds:

  1. Food Bird feeding is a great way to attract birds to your yard but keep in mind that different birds eat different types of foods such as seeds, nectar, fruits, worms and insects – just to name a few.
  2. Shelter No matter the season, shelter is a key way to make birds feel safe and encourage them to make your yard their home. Location is also important when it comes to birdhouses so install your birdhouse in a safe location. Planting native plants, shrubs and trees also provides a natural food source for birds.
  3. Water All birds need water for both drinking and bathing so it’s a good idea to have some source of water in your yard to attract them!

Other Tips to Encourage Winged Visitors:

  • Keep your feeders clean by washing them inside and out once a week.
  • Install a perch stick for birds to rest, bathe or simply just enjoy your backyard.
  • Get their attention with bright coloured feeders or vibrant flowers.
  • Visit some of our local garden stores and greenhouses to find native species that you can use to create your very own backyard bird garden.
  • Squirrel-proof your bird feeders!
