Basic Tips to Attract Birds to the Backyard

  • Keep food fresh: Store fresh seed in a sturdy plastic or galvanized metal waterproof container with a tight-fitting lid. Keep containers in a cool, dry location, such as a garage or shed.
  • Change bird seed: Seed that is clumped together or smells musty has gone bad and should be disposed of.
  • Water is key: Providing water, especially moving water, attracts more birds to your yard. Birds like shallow water, so avoid water deeper than 2-3 inches.
  • Pick an open location: Birds are most comfortable when they have a clear view of potential predators and a place to escape. Put feeders on open ground near shrubs or trees.
  • Prevent freezing when possible: Heated birdbaths or heating elements for standard birdbaths help keep water from freezing. Some birders pour warm water in birdbaths to help melt any ice.
