Create a Bird Haven in Your Own Yard!

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

-Chinese Proverb

The songs of birds are truly some of the most delightful sounds I can think of, and few things are as lovely as watching birds flitter and perch around my garden. Thats what perked my interest in attracting birds, the sheer and simple beauty of them.

Here we aim to give you the best information for attracting the types of birds you want. For instance, did you know that different types of seed will attract different types of birds? And different kinds of houses will attract different species as well? Do you want certain kinds of birds or a wide variety? This will depend on the types of supplies you put out and where you put them.

Along with finding out about what different birds prefer, you'll find much on how to attract them to your home with lovely feeders, birdbaths, houses, etc., and much on the joys of having them around.

Our articles will point you to some of the best supplies for creating a haven for the birds around your home. Youll also find numerous features on different products for the birds, information on attracting birds, as well as literary quotes on the joys that our aviary friends bring us sprinkled throughout. I hope you enjoy and find some useful items and/or information along the way.
