How To Make A Bird Feeder
There is nothing more uplifting than seeing, and hearing, happy birds enjoying a safe space you have created for them in the garden or on the balcony!
By understanding the advantages of feeding birds and taking steps to appreciate all those benefits, backyard birders can thoroughly enjoy every bird they feed. We share seven reasons why feeding birds is a good idea, followed by an easy video tutorial we found, demonstrating how you can make a bird feeder out of scraps salvaged from the recycle bin.
1. Interacting with Nature
For many urban birders, the birds they see at their feeders may be the only wild animals they have the chance to interact with.
2. Outdoor Pets
As you become more familiar with your backyard birds, it is possible to begin recognizing individual birds by their unique markings or personalities.
3. Offering a Helping Hand
While feeding birds brings backyard birders many benefits, it also benefits the birds by replacing food sources that have been destroyed by development.
By changing feeder-styles and food-types you can learn more about the birds that visit your garden.
5. Insect Control
When you feed birds in your backyard you also invite them to a free feast of the insects, worms, snails, and spiders that inhabit your landscape.
6. Flower Pollination
By encouraging birds to visit your garden you can assist with flower pollination.
7. Photography and Art
If you have an interest in photography and art you will be treated to a proliferation of poses right outside your window at feeding time.
