Having a bird feeder in your yard has many benefits!
Education: Bird feeders are great for kids and adults to learn about the different types of birds in our province and watching their behavior!
Insect Control: Birds eat much more than seed, and feeding birds in your backyard also invites them to feast on the insects, worms, snails and spiders in your landscape!
Flower Pollination: Not only do birds eat insects that can help keep your landscape healthier, but they assist with flower pollination.
Weed Control: Many small birds such as sparrows and finches eat tremendous amounts of seeds, especially from seed bearing flowers or weeds that might be undesirable in your landscape. Feeding these birds will also attract them to the natural food sources in your landscape, including weeds.
Interacting With Nature: For many urban birders, the birds they see at their feeders may be the only
wild animals they have the chance to interact with. This can be an ideal activity for senior citizens,
individuals with limited mobility or young children to get their first exposure to nature.
