Now that you’re decorating your garden, you may notice that lots of birds are in your area. If you want to create a comfortable place for birds to eat and rest, you may want to check out some decorative bird feeders that will accent your garden well. Here are some of the best places to shop for decorative bird feeders, as well as some designs you may enjoy.
If you live in an area where there are lots of hummingbirds, you can purchase a hummingbird feeder from your local pet store (check out PetSmart or Petco), or you can order a feeder from companies like A1 Glass Hummingbird Feeders. The feeders are made from hand blown glass, so they will definitely be a decorative addition to your already beautiful garden. You’ll find editions in a variety of colors, and there are a number of accessories you’ll want to purchase from the site as well like rubber stoppers and replacement flowers. You’ll need to make sugar water to fill these decorative bird feeders, since this is what hummingbirds eat.
You can also find decorative bird feeders on sites like www.birdwatchers.com. There are birdhouses on the site with a rustic, country feel to match the decor of your garden, or you can choose from designs that require birds to eat upside down. There are instructions for hanging the decorative bird feeders, as well as more ideas for decorations, so you can change the accents of your garden any time you want.
Bird Sanctum has some great feeders for you to choose from as well. There are gazebo-style bird feeders available on the site, as well as squirrel-proof feeders. You’ll also find bird baths, heated baths, and bird identifier tools that you can use to find out which birds visit your yard most frequently.
You can also check out sites like www.amazon.com or www.overstock.com for great decorative bird feeders; there are decorations on the site that compliment a number of garden styles (i.e. flowers and even athletic team-themed designs), and you’ll get a chance to read reviews on the brands that create the bird feeders before you buy.
Before you get your decorative bird feeders, you should know what to fill the feeders with so that you’ll always have birds in the yard. If you have birds in the mockingbird family in your yard, apples cut in half, as well as other fruits, should go in your birdhouse. Robins, thrushes, and Bluebirds feed on berries, suet, and mealworms, so be sure to include these items in your decorative bird feeders, as well as plenty of water. Good luck!
