Spring Bird Care

As spring approaches, so does the excitement of bird migration! Check out WBFI and PROJECT WILDBIRD® resources to help you transform your space into an inviting haven for these feathered guests. Find tips on attracting a diverse range of birds, insights into the hummingbird migration, and an exploration of the ecological significance of the upcoming cicada emergence.

Help Bird Populations

Over recent history, birds have perished at an alarming rate. In fact, more than 1 in 4 birds has disappeared since 1970. This is scary since birds keep nature’s ecosystems in check.

Want to help? Start by buying a bird feeder, and support the declining population by feeding the birds. You can also become a citizen scientist and participate in projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count.

Buy Into the Benefits

Support your local stores! Find feed, feeders, houses, and all other birding needs right in your area. Some products to help you get started include:

  • Attract - With a good bird feeder
  • Observe - With a good pair of binoculars or scope
  • Identify - With a field guide
  • Encourage - With a birdhouse or nesting box
