To understand why birds are not visiting your backyard, first you need to know which species are in your area. Then add food and water. Lastly, make sure the environment is peaceful.

Step one, knowing which species are in your area. To determine which bird species are in your area you have a variety of choices. Sources such as Farmers Almanacs or the Audobon Society are great resources. Next, you can consult birding and bird watching groups in your area. Third, you should visit your local library since they may have extensive collections on birds and may also have information on birding and bird watching groups. You can also visit bird feeder and bird food stores. They usually carry pamphlets and brochures on local species. Moreover, the staff and owners of these stores tend to be knowledgeable on the subject.

Step two, after knowing what species are in your area you’ll need to buy the right food. You’ll also need to create a place where birds can eat. If you decide to go the bird feeder and bird food stores, while you’re there, you should consider buying supplies. The supplies are very important. Different species of birds like different types of food. Feeders are typically built for either seeds, nectar, or suet. The seeds that almost all birds prefer are millet seed and sunflower seeds, both seeds are extremely easy to find and cheap as well.

One of the most important steps is to add water. Water is important for all living creatures including birds. Bird supplies stores often carry an array of bird baths. No matter the size or the material, bird baths would instantly attract many varieties of birds.

Step three, is to keep your backyard peaceful. Keeping your backyard free of noise and distractions is paramount to attracting birds after all birds are small creatures and tend to fly off at the first sign of trouble. Animals such as cats and dogs, little children, and loud noises tend to scare birds.

To understand why birds are not visiting your backyard, first you need to know which species are in your area. Then add water and food. Lastly, make sure the environment is peaceful.

The key to understanding why birds are not visiting your backyard is knowing which species are in your area, adding food and water and making sure the environment is peaceful.
