For every type of backyard, and for many particular species there are bird feeders to do the job. Obviously, large capacity feeders are better suited to larger yards with lots of space. But if you have a small yard, or even no yard at all…you can still entice and attract many species of wild birds.
Platforms or tray type feeders are extremely versatile as far as offering various foods. They’ll accommodate any birdseed mixes, suet, fruit, peanuts, or even mealworms. This means you can attract different species according to seasons. Window bird feeders are available in this tray style too, plus they allow for great close up views of your visitors. Hummingbirds for example, will also visit window bird feeders that are meant to hold nectar. In-Window bird feeders are also a great way to go if space is limited. These fit conveniently in most standard size windows, with the general feeding area right inside your room…talk about close up views!
So even if you’re in an apartment with the smallest deck, there are bird accessories to invite feathered friends to your place. A small birdbath will also do wonders for attracting many species, in fact, it’s the best single way to bring birds home!
