How to attract birds to your garden

You can start by putting up a bird feeder. You will need to position the feeder such that squirrels cant reach it. With the feeder set up, fill it with good quality wild birds seeds. Remember to position the feeders within 1m of or over 6m away from windows to minimise the risk of birds flying into windows.

 

A bird bath will also attract birds to drink and bath in your garden. Just make sure the water is always clean and not too deep.

Birds will also need cover and nesting sites. So it is a good idea to also put up bird houses and vegetation which provides natural nesting sites. Vegetation will also complement in providing natural bird food in the form of fruits and berries.
