Tips for Bonding with Wild Birds in Your Garden

By: Anushka Jha

Offer a diverse selection of bird feed, including seeds, suet, and mealworms, to attract a variety of species to your garden.  


Create natural shelters like bushes and trees for birds to hide from predators and harsh weather conditions.  


Set a birdbath or a small pond to provide birds with a source of clean water for drinking and bathing.  


Plant native vegetation to attract insects, which are essential food sources for many bird species.  


Minimize the use of pesticides and herbicides in your garden to check the safety of visiting birds.  


Set up bird feeders near a window or invest in binoculars to observe bird behavior from a distance without disturbing them.  


Remember that wild birds are not pets; maintain a respectful distance and avoid trying to handle or tame them.
