Make a Bird Friendly Sanctuary with These Helpful Tips

Do you enjoy watching birds outside your window, or out in your garden? Backyard habitats that create a bird-friendly environment add a sense of tranquility and natural beauty to our outdoor havens. At Friedman’s Home Improvement, we know that if we build an oasis for birds in our gardens, they will grace us with their timeless beauty and songs, season after season.

To create a bird-friendly environment in your back yard, create a backyard habitat that will attract our feathered friends. The first rule of building a bird habitat is location, location, location. Choose a spot that’s not in a traffic area, but allows you to observe your visitors.

What you’ll need to create a bird-friendly environment and backyard habitat:

●      Scotts® Songbird Selections® Multi-Bird Bell with Fruit & Nuts

●      Trees and Shrubs

●      Tall Grasses

●      Birdhouses

●      Fountains, Streams, Ponds, or Birdbaths

Step 1:  Feed Them Well

To attract birds to your garden, a good variety of native perennials that produce seeds, berries, and nectar will entice different species to pay your yard a visit. You can supplement the offerings of your plants with bird feeders filled with Scotts® Songbird Selections™ Multi-Bird Blend With Fruit & Nuts.

Step 2:  Keep Them Safe and Warm

Trees, shrubs, and vines of varying heights make excellent shelter for birds. To keep birds safe and warm, you can either encourage them use existing plants, or add a birdhouse or two to your garden.

The formula for a bird-friendly is rather simple, really. If birds can find food and shelter in your backyard habitat, they will make your home their home, too. If you desire to transform your backyard into a migratory songbird stop and need bird-friendly plants, birdbaths, or bird seed, visit us any time either at Friedman’s Home Improvement, or at one of our Santa Rosa, Sonoma, or Ukiah stores, where you’ll get the lowest price and local advice.
