Bird Baths

 

A clean and reliable water source is an excellent way to attract birds to your yard, Accessorize with a bird bathespecially those birds that do not necessarily eat seed or nectar. All birds will seek out a water supply, not only for drinking but also for keeping themselves clean and healthy.

 

Birds must keep their feathers clean to be able to fly properly. The best bird baths have a shallow basin with a slight slope so the birds can wade into the water.

 

Place your bird bath in the shade, near trees or shrubs if possible. The shade keeps the water from evaporating quickly and keeps it fresher.

 

Birds wet from bathing don't fly well, so they're more vulnerable to predators. Shrubbery nearby gives them a safe place to hide while they preen and dry off.

Bird Houses

 

Bird houses are a good way to attract those species of birds that nest in holes. These structures should be made of an untreated wood

Accessorize with a bird house(pine, cedar, etc.) and should have ventilation and drainage holes. Bird houses should be durable, and easy to check and clean.

 

It is important to first determine what species of birds you want to attract (bluebirds, wrens and flickers are all nesting birds) and make sure your Bird house is appropriate for these species. You’ll also want to make sure that the species is in fact native to your area of the country.
