Wild birds drawn to your bird feeders, bird houses and bird baths can be both an intriguing and gratifying experience.
Choosing the right bird feeder can assist your efforts to attract various types of wild birds to your backyard. Whether a Hummingbird, Bluebird or Cardinal, is your favorite bird, or you just want any type of bird, we will provide the information necessary to help you populate your garden space with beautiful birds.
But there is so much more than simply erecting bird feeders, bird houses and bird baths that you can do to bring feathered friends up close for hours of exciting viewing. There is lots to learn about birds that will amaze you and it is our purpose to help you.
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...
A new type of wild bird you have never seen before at your bird feeder (should I run for my bird identification book!) or just watch.

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 grandchildren and eagerly sharing with you.
I would like to share with you what I've learned over thirty years of pursuing my passion.
My husband and I owned a backyard bird supply store for a number of years. We learned a great deal from selling thousands of birding items and bird seed.
There is a vast amount of equipment, books and other excellent products available. There are many outstanding manufacturers and distributors in the birding industry such as Duncraft, Achla, Allied Precision, Brome Bird Care, Droll Yankee, Aspects Feeders, Heritage Farms, Homestead, Perky Pet, Songbird Essentials, Woodlink "Audubon Series" and many more. I'll pass on what I learned from that experience. About various products and what customers told me.
You may be looking for answers to some problems. It is my hope that you will find them here.
