Why Feed Wild Birds?

Bird feeding has been commonplace around the world for centuries. We are sometimes asked, "Why should I want to feed wild birds?" Many people believe that birds can just find food on their own, without assistance from mankind, and they will do just fine. And while this may be partially true, urban sprawl in many parts of the world, as well as increasingly difficult environmental conditions, makes it quite difficult for birds to survive.

Here are some reasons why it is good to feed wild birds:

It's a great hobby. Bird feeding is an easy hobby to begin, doesn't require a great deal of expertise, and is quite affordable as well. Whether you just use a single feeder or create an entire feeder system with ourPopoutz feeders for example, you will find that this hobby is a great way to enjoy your wild bird friends!

It's entertaining. Once you begin watching birds at your bird feeders, you will notice all the interesting things they do in their pursuit of a good meal. You will see little baby birds, flapping their wings and making their unique "feed me" sounds to their parents. You will receive many hours of entertainment and enjoyment, watching your wild birds in the backyard habitat you created just for them!

It's relaxing. Imagine a beautiful summer afternoon. You are sitting in your kitchen or on your deck and can hear all the soothing and relaxing sounds of wild birds at your feeders. This is the environment you can create, right in your own back yard, just by feeding wild birds!

It's educational. You will see all the bird squabbles and you will learn all about the "pecking order" of the bird kingdom. You will come to learn the songs unique to each bird, their mating calls, and the cry for food that is heard from their young. You can learn something every day from watching your birds.

It gives you a sense of wellbeing. There is nothing like the satisfaction you get from knowing you help large numbers of birds raise their young or survive a harsh winter. It's almost like bird therapy!

It helps to restore habitat losses. Each new residential neighborhood that springs up or each tree that is cut down makes it more difficult for birds to eat and live. Bird feeding helps to restore some of the natural habitat bird lose due to expansion into woodlands, fields, and meadows.

It helps keep birds healthy. Feeding birds quality products, such as those offered here at Nature's Wild Bird Food, keeps birds healthier.
