You will be able to find the answers to many questions like these.
The answer may surprise you. 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. Wild birds like many of their admirers love the sound of water.
And a bath will draw birds who normally would not be attracted to a feeder.
Different species choose to raise their young in a fashion that is suited to their particular preferences and their environment.
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.
Some species like Chickadees, Nuthatches and the Woodpecker family are cavity nesters. They are the ones who will have a look at a bird house you have erected to size-it-up for suitability.
