I scatter the left over feed in the yard by my garden and feed the neighbor hood birds. they know where they can get a free snack and I have seen some cool looking birds that come in too feed. there are a pair of wood peckers and blue jays that have become adjusted to my presence and its cool to know they know me..

Nothing fancy about my backyard. When we moved in, the guy who sold it had backhoed the entire yard, and it looked like the moon. Over the years, we planted lots of trees and bushes to make it woodsy and natural. It is nice and shady now, and brings in lots of birds and other animals. Most of what we planted are things that either give shelter to them or feed them. But it isn't neat and fancy. Just natural and woodsy. I can hear the sound of songbirds all day long. Even in the winter time, they come to the heated bird bath and feeders.

Thanks, but just kinda natural. Nothing fancy. I have those old wash tubs and ones like it scattered around the yard. Yes, we do spend a lot of time out there as it's very private and relaxing. Our little rescue terrier, spends her time chasing the squirrels, who love to taunt her. We get a lot of little animals too. I love nature, but don't want to work too hard at it, so keep it simple.

Thanks, but it's just natural. But it's what the birds like. So do I. You can be out there and nobody even knows. At the end of the day, you can go up back and hide on the world. In the winter, it's a pain because we have to shovel to all the feeders. LOL.

Does anyone ever scatter seeds and cover them up to sprout them? That way you are growing the kind of things they like. When they go to seed at the end of the season, they would love it. All you need is a little patch that gets sun. Sunflowers are fun for that. At the end of the season the birds flock to them.
