Even if your house has the smallest of yards, backyard birding shouldn’t be out of the question. Attracting songbirds does not need to be a complicated task requiring huge spaces. Window bird feeders are a great place to start. Once discovered, songbirds will return daily for treats you offer them.
A myriad of these window feeders are available for birdseed, nectar, mealworms, and suet. These are some favorite foods of Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice, Cardinals, Hummingbirds, Orioles, Bluebirds and more. You can even offer fruit and any possible mixture with a window platform-type feeder. Blue Jays and Woodpeckers really go for peanuts on this one. Some window nectar feeders for hummingbirds feature removable lids for offering seed mixes in winter time. In-house window feeders will virtually bring birds right into your home!
Aside from just attracting birds, window bird feeders offer fabulous views of your feathered friends. A great educational item for children as well, once you start the birding hobby…it’s addictive! Entice wild birds to your yard with feeders, houses, and a fresh water source. Small birdbaths will do a phenomenal job at attracting more species of birds to your place too.
