Attracting backyard birds can be an exciting time to establish a great season for bird watching in your backyard. In the spring, there seems to be new visitors to your backyard every day. Spring is a wonderful time for humans, but it is a crucial point in time for our feathered friends. They have just arrived after following their long bird migration pattern. No matter how much fatigue they may be feeling, the stress on their bodies has just begun.
Food sources may not be available or easily accessible. A great way to attract birds to your yard is to place several bird feeders around the yard and to have a couple of decorative birdhouses available for your friends. These are simple tasks but they will help greatly in attracting backyard birds to your yard and the rewards will be many!
Not only will you have the joy of watching wild birds, but you will be helping them with baby bird care and raising their young through the flying stage. By properly preparing to attract backyard birds in the spring, you will have the joy of their staying throughout the spring, summer and the autumn seasons, until it’s time for their bi-annual bird migration southwards.
When wild birds arrive they must stake out and lay claim to a breeding territory, undertake bird mating, build a bird nest and care for baby birds. Unlike us humans who take many years to complete this process, our backyard birds must accomplish all of these requirements of life completed in just a few short months.
