Hi Bingo Tarts!
I love bingo but I love nature too. I love to watch the birdies as I sip my coffee. I've found some top ways to attract the little beauties to your yard.
FOOD, A HOME AND SECURITY: The basics of life will bring the birds to your garden
Source your seeds
Buy birdfood from reputable sources. This ensures that the seeds can provide the required levels of energy and have been grown with the environment in mind. Experiment with different sorts of feeders and seed mixes. For example, greenfinches adore sunflower feeders while goldfinches prefer niger seeds.
Make them feel at home
Reduce the opportunities for predators like cats and sparrowhawks by placing feeders where the birds can spot danger easily. Avoid using garden netting, especially during the breeding season, and place feeders away from your house to minimise the risk of birds colliding with windows.
Let them build their own
Itís great if your birds use the nestboxes youíve put up, but it is even more satisfying if they create natural nest sites. Provide hedges with dense cover to allow them to do this. Source: discoverwildlife.com One other critical aspect of attracting birds is keeping your feeders clean!
Well, enjoy and watch the birds fly through your Bingo Sky!
