Welcoming wildlife, like birds, to your garden can seem like a difficult task, but birds can actually help you and your garden in so many ways. It is important to protect wildlife and the integral role they play in our ecosystems. Help the birds by attracting them to your home with quality feeders and food and they will show you their gratitude by helping you!
BENEFIT ONE: PEST CONTROL
Are you looking for a completely natural way to control pests and insects in your yard? Birds are a great option. They eat a vast variety of insects like the mosquitoes, spiders, aphids, and other bugs in your yard.
BENEFIT TWO: POLLINATION AND WEED CONTROL
Inviting birds like Hummingbirds, orioles, or any other types that sip nectar will help with necessary pollination to keep your flowers beautiful. These types of birds are efficient pollinators which is exactly what your garden needs.
Birds like Finches or Sparrows, are known for consuming high quantities of weed seeds. This will help control unwanted weeds and plants in your garden.
BENEFIT THREE: HAPPY LIFE, HAPPY WORLD
Conserving wildlife by creating a sanctuary and providing a source of nourishment is important to the vast ecosystem of our planet.
Also, attracting birds to your garden provides the opportunity to observe and learn about local wildlife, all year long. Introduce the kids to the excitement of nature and how active it is while you spend time together studying the movements, the types of birds, and their eating habits during each season.
HOW TO ATTRACT BIRDS TO YOUR GARDEN
Native plants and providing a water source are a great starting point to keeping birds around.
Feeders and food are also great avenues to start the process.
STEP 1: FEEDERS
Here at Calloway’s and Cornelius, we have several types of feeders available. From single and triple tube feeders, to squirrel proof feeders, you’ll find everything you need to keep your bird friends happy.
All of our feeders come in different shapes, colors, and materials to fit your style or needs.
Check out the different types of feeders and the birds that they attract. If you know what types of wildlife are around your yard, check out feeders that would appeal to them with easy access to their food source.
Hummingbird feeders are also readily available in stylish colors and designs. Each style has a flower to direct the hummingbird to its nectar.
STEP 2: FOOD
These delicious seeds are spiced with capsaicin and are full of nutrients. Birds like Blue Jays, Cardinals, and Woodpeckers love the robust flavor. Squirrels, on the other hand, do not enjoy the spicy taste and will avoid snatching this food up at all costs!
