Use bird feeders to draw birds into your yard

Bird feeders are an excellent way to entice birds to visit and return to your yard, especially during the cold winter months when food is hard to come by. They also attract avian visitors during the spring and fall migratory periods.

If you want to attract a particular species of bird, you'll have to do your homework and learn what bird supplies to get. Many bird species have specific diets and feeding habits, which you'll have to understand if you want them to visit your home.
