We’re very fortunate here in San Diego County to have such a variety of bird species to enjoy. In this article, we’ll share a few tips for getting our feathered friends to hang out for a while in your backyards.
Birds attract birds.
Practically anything you can do to attract some birds to your yard will go a long ways towards making your yard visible to other birds.
Give them a buffet!
For the widest variety of birds, you should place a variety of bird feeders with differing types of seed around your backyard. Black oil sunflower seeds, safflower, millet, and nyger are good seeds, to begin with.
As for planters, you should go for variety there as well. You can include platform feeders, hanging feeders and suet feeders for birds that prefer insects.
Give them shelter.
Just like most of us other living creatures, birds feel a bit more secure when they know they have shelter from the elements and predators. Shelter for birds can mean trees, large shrubs and bird houses.
Don’t skimp on the water!
The sound of moving water is irresistible to birds. A bird bath with a dripper or mister is sure to attract birds from greater distances to your yard for a bath or cool drink.

I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
