Hi, I am looking for a bird-friendly garden to attract the maximum number of birds in my garden.
I have search on the internet and found some of the best seeds to attract hummingbirds. But
I am a little confused as I wanted to spread these seeds in my garden. Let me know if this can be
bad for the beauty of my garden in any way.

In most cases the owners do not know how to get rid of feathery pests, which can not only spoil the growing crops, but also dig up crops. And this is a consequence of the improperly organised location of the feathered guests. Before attracting birds to the garden, you must provide them with feeders, drinkers and houses in which they can breed.

We can build a bird friendly garden by using the following steps:
1. The garden should be designed in such a way that it has a variety of plants and trees.
2. The garden should be surrounded by boundary walls or fences and should have a wide entrance.
3. The garden should have perching and nesting places for the birds.
4. Bird feeders can be provided.
5. The garden should be watered frequently.
6. The garden should have water features such as bamboo piped to drip water from the top.
7. The site should have a water run-off system, made with short pieces of bamboo and concrete, which leads to a drain. Although the above steps can be used to ensure a bird friendly garden, yet it is always better to consult a few experts to know the right way to go about it.

Bird feeders and water sources.

When we moved here a little over a year ago, there was hardly a bird around, after just a few months of hanging bird feeders in various locations, I’ve now got lots a feathered visitors.

Some do a great job of eating unwanted bugs, others are just lovely to watch.

Hummingbirds are attracted to similar flowers to bees - they seem to particularly like azalea flowers, roses and Basil flowers - I allow the Basil to flower just to bring the bees in.

Depending on the bird you want to attract to your garden. Prepare bird feeders and some nuts that attract individual birds. You can add flowers and some shrubs, and it's best to plant natural grass instead of artificial grass. It is also important to prepare the bath as it is also essential and more attractive to birds.

I put a mixed seed on the bird table and sunflower hearts in the seed tubes. Both attract a lot of different birds, i don't put peanuts in the peanut tubes because they don't eat them very much, only one squirrel and it will eat the sunflower hearts.
I put oats on the table and ground, also i put the mixed seed on the ground.
