For feeding birds, you’ll have to get the right bird feeders and pick the right bird seed. Another great way to attract birds to your yard is to plant flowers, trees, and shrubs that will attract birds. Keep in mind that feeding birds with variety is the key to a successful backyard habitat. By placing several different types of feeders throughout your yard, you will attract many different types of birds. Platform feeders, Tube feeders, Nyjer feeders, and Suet feeders will each attract a different type of bird. Hummingbirds need a special feeder that you fill with nectar instead of seed. Like birds, feeders come in a lot of different shapes and sizes. Which size or shape you pick is often just a matter of personal taste. Regardless of the type of feeder you select, you’ll have to clean it and refill it regularly. If you put out the right food, you can attract the types of birds you want in your yard. Some birds are opportunists and will eat a variety of foods. Others are picky eaters. Oil sunflower, Striped sunflower, Nyjer, Safflower, Millet, Peanuts, Cracked corn, Wild bird mix, Sunflower hearts will all attract different birds, so it’s important to know what the type of bird you want to attract likes to eat.
