Set up a New Space for the BirdsMaybe you've always dreamt of having a space in your landscaping dedicated those cute feather friends. Whether you want to hang a bird feeder from your front porch or go all out and create a bird sanctuary complete with plants, protection, bird baths and more. This weekend is the perfect time to start making plans to start. While the weather may be forecasting rain and storms, you can still take steps to care for your wild birds this weekend.
Learn About the Species In Your BackyardThis can be a fun activity with kids, or even on your own! If you don't know what types of birds are living in your backyard, this weekend would be a great time to learn. Sit by your window, or on your porch (since it's supposed to be a wet weekend), with your binoculars or your camera, and a bird book, or your phone. Whenever you see a bird hopping around in your yard or land on your porch railing, take note of their color and shape, or grab a quick photo for reference. Then you can look through bird websites to see which one you saw!
You can also download apps for your phone that will teach you which sounds different birds make. This can be a fun way to learn more about your little friends, and be able to pick their calls out in the woods!
Buy a New Bird FeederFinally, if you've had the same bird feeder for years and year, or maybe you don't even have one at all - treat yourself (and the birds!) this weekend and come to Camdenton Farm and Garden for a new one!
