Yes, they are hard working. Hopping here and there to search out insects. And you hear them through the day, either singing their pretty song, or scolding anything that comes anywhere near their nest, or their babies. We planted a lot of ground covers, and low shrubs and vines throughout the back yard, as they prefer that, and so do the catbirds that I am fond of.

Well are humers laid eggs late. And they still look a little ugly.

u can also put out chopped berries, and nail a few oranges to a tree and put out a dish of grape jelly for orioles .
don't forget the hummingbird feeders, if you have any with yellow on it, take a little acrylic paint and paint those parts red, red attracts the hummers, yellow attracts the yellow jackets and the venom from a yellow jacket can kill a hummer.
no need to buy any pre mixed nector for them, just melt 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, no food coloring unless you just want to color it red until they find the feeder, and disinfect and change the sugar water about once a week, it's okay if ants and other insects go in and drown it actually adds protien they need to the mixture.
oh and then i have the feeder for the sparrows, they tend to prefer the cheapest bird seed from the grocery store and they will leave the more expensive seed alone most of the time
Well I have too say that there is more then one thing you mentiond here that I did not know, thanks for the info. I have six houses for the wrens and this year every one of them was occupied, I just love those little guys when they are peeking there heads out waiting for mom to feed. I am going to make a few more that will open in the front and take some pictures next year. >Kevin

I wouldn't open them up with the babies. They might fall out. Just take pics of them being fed by the parent, or them peeking out.

Here's one of some house sparrows in our yard.

Birds can be picky, and various bird seed to attract several species of birds. Understand what the different suits, and that the birds prefer which goes bird-watcher who can help create a buffet that is tailored to the preferences of their bird food
