One way to get birds to visit your garden is to have some feeders located around. With this said, it is important that they are located in areas away from the home the birds may be too scared to investigate if the feeder is right next to the door. In addition to this, you should also ensure that the seeds you purchase are safe by getting them from a reputable source.
Birds love to build their own nests, however, providing them with a nest box is another great way to welcome the feathered flyers into your garden. After all, nest boxes allow birds to breed without the risk of falling victim to larger predators. In addition to this, the nest boxes can help protect them from the outside weather which is important for birds that have young.
Not only can bird baths be a great way to make your garden bird friendly, they can also be a brilliant aesthetic addition. After all, many people add bird baths in order to improve their landscaping. With this said, bird baths also provide a safe place for birds of all shapes and sizes to drink, bathe and preen their feathers.
