Make your Yard Bird Friendly
Steps to make your yard bird friendly:
- Offer different types of food. Sunflower and suet are good choices.
- Provide a water source. Free water can be difficult to find when temperatures fall below for several days. Birdbath heaters are readily available.
- Provide shelter options. This can include a roost box, shrubs, tangled vines or even a simple brush pile.
- Refrain from using pesticides on your lawn and in your garden. Insects make up an important part of bird's diets and the chemicals in pesticides could also make birds sick.
A simple brush pile provides birds shelter from the elements.
