Some people love the chirping and tweeting of birds in their yard. They also know that no yard is complete without a few birds flying through and occupying the bird houses on your property. However, the winters in Maryland are cold and many birds migrate south. Fortunately for the bird lovers out there, not all birds migrate in the winter and below, we have a list of tips and tricks to help you attract birds to your yard in Maryland this winter.
- Feed them – the best way to get birds to come visit is if you put out an array of their favorite snacks. Adding bird food to your feeder will make your yard more inviting for the birds to stop by for a visit. Some of the best food to feed a bird in Maryland is peanuts, sunflower seeds, peanut butter and more. Birds tend to keep a vegetarian diet.
- Quench their thirst – in the wintertime, many water sources have frozen over and that makes it difficult for birds to find something to drink. If you want to invite birds to your yard, put out a little bit of fresh water. It will invite birds to your yard. If you want to keep the water from freezing, consider installing a heater to your birdbath.
- Shelter them – giving the birds a warm place to rest will make them more likely to visit you in Maryland. Building a winter bird shelter is important to keep the birds warm in the frigid winter months.
By providing for birds’ basic needs in Maryland, you will be sure to attract some fun little birds this winter, even when the weather is at its worst.
