Creating a backyard habitat for birds is a simple and entertaining project. Birds require four basic needs to survive: Food, Water, Cover & Places to Raise Young. If possible, leave some of the land on your property untouched allowing some of the natural habitat to remain intact. Offering a variety of feed will in turn help attract a variety of birds and multiple feeders deter aggressive birds from dominating the feeding stations. Bathing and drinking is essential to birds and they will flock to a well-maintained water source. There is nothing more rewarding than watching and listening to birds in your yard and garden.
