Watching Wild Birds Leads To A Healthy, Happy Life!

There is so much more than simply erecting bird feeders, that you can do to bring wild birds up close for hours of exciting viewing. There is lots to learn about birds that will amaze you.

(Links to more info about this topic at bottom of page.)

Enjoy & Attract Birds To Your Backyard

For instance, did you know that a bird bath will attract birds easier and faster than a bird feeder? Plus if you add movement to the water your feathered friends will not be able to resist your invitation. And a bath will draw birds who normally would not be attracted to a seed feeder.

Bird houses are another avenue to attract birds for close-up viewing. It is a wonderful experience to watch adult birds care for and raise their young.

Your first feathered visitor to your bird feeders is a special exhilarating experience. This feeling does not end after the first visitor either, but continues with the second and third...

There are Many Types of Wild Birds

The list of exhilarating moments can go on and on. Songbirds at your bird feeders are awesome, but be careful!

But, “Why be careful?” you ask?

All bird supplies, including bird feeders and houses should come with the warning:

“Bird feeding can be addictive!”

Many hours can pass by while you are entertained and in feeling good by your feathered friends and their antics.

Of course it’s not an “addiction” in the negative, destructive sense. It is a healthy, cherished and positive hobby, watching and learning about birds.

A pastime that enhances your life in so many ways. That has certainly been my experience. One that I am now passing on to my family and eagerly sharing with you.
