The Guelph area is rich with birds, and what's better, many of them readily come to people's backyards! There are several ways to attract birds, but a good place to start is to decide which bird(s) you'd like to attract.
Birds all prefer different things to eat, as well as where they like to eat. Some birds, like the Mourning Dove, prefer to eat white millet on or near the ground. Other birds, like the Black-capped Chickadee, prefer to eat black oil sunflower seeds in a hanging feeder. (Visit our webpage What you can offer your birds to download a copy of our Seed Preference Guide.)
When you start to introduce yourself to the world of birdfeeding, you might be surprised to find that there are so many options. But don't be overwhelmed! Start by familiarizing yourself with the following birds, by clicking on each name to learn what they eat, which feeders they'll eat from, and fun behaviour you can watch for.
At Wild Birds Unlimited, we can walk you through getting started, and help you add to your hobby of birdfeeding!
