Befriend Nature With Garden Bird Feeders
Feed your flying friends with style using the best garden bird feeders and add beauty to your yard all at the same time! I love feeding the birds. Some days, I simply enjoy sitting in my backyard watching them eat, bath, or bask in the sun. Bird feeders are the best way to attract avians to any garden, green house or backyard and I personally have several that I keep loaded with sunflower seeds and food for my guests.
Having our feathered friends in our yards can be very beneficial. Some birds, like hummingbirds, can help pollinate your plants to make them bloom with flowers. Others eat insects that could be detrimental to your garden such as aphids, Japanese beetles and even pesky mosquitoes. Would you believe there are some that can eat hundreds of bugs a day?
Aside from horticultural benefits, they are simply fun watch. So, keep them coming to your outdoor haven by grabbing one of these feeders today.
I have several feeders similar to this one in my own garden. I love to watch the birds come in each morning to eat. I often take my camera to the backyard with me and take photos.
