If you’re interested in seeing more birds in your backyard, the best way to do that is with a bird house and some seed. However, before you get started, you’ll want to make sure you are prepared. Preparation is quite simple, but important.
- Store your bird seed in a cool and dry location
- Make sure your storage container is clean and very durable
- Get a good scoop for easy filling (this could be anything from a measuring cup to a deep bowl)
- Maintain your bird seed stock by refilling it frequently and check that it’s fresh
PRO TIP: Don’t fill your feeder with more than one or two days of seed so it doesn’t go bad. In storage, keep only about 2-4 weeks worth of seed.
