Welcome Back the Birds

Spring means it’s time for our feathered friends to return to their summer homes. Welcome them back with tips from Sally Roth, author of The Backyard Bid-Lover’s Ultimate How-To Guide.

Use a birdbath. Fresh water can be even more of an attraction that the best-stocked feeder. Any type of birdbath will do, as long as it’s kept clean and full of fresh water.

Offer seeds. No need to buy a pricey specialty mix; millet and sunflower seeds do the trick.

Make food visible. Place birdseed in a large, open tray that’s easy for birds flying overhead to see. Once a few birds stop by to snack, more will take note and flock to the food.

Make them a home of their own. Click here for easy instructions on how to turn an empty milk carton into a birdhouse, complete with a roof of seeds!
