Spring has sprung! Now that warmer weather is here, it’s a great time to think about prepping your outdoor spaces for a new season of wild bird feeding. Not sure where to begin? Want to learn more about what you can do to attract more birds to your area?
Here are five tips from Purina Mills on how you can refresh your home for feeding the wild birds.
#1 . Keep it Fresh.
Seed sitting through the winter may absorb moisture and become damp or moldy. Refresh your feeders by replacing that seed.
Cleaning those feeders from a long winter will help to attract more birds. You can begin by removing any musty or moldy seed, then use a bird feeder brush to clean out the interior. Finish it up with a strong spray from the garden hose!
#3. Who’s there?
Do you have ‘extra’ unwanted critters snacking on your wild bird seed? Try a different feeder to attract the type of wild bird you are looking for.
