Our monthly birdwatching update is your key to unlocking a deeper appreciation for the natural world.

Creating a Bird-Friendly Environment

If you want to attract a wide variety of bird species to your yard, it is important to create a bird-friendly environment. By providing the necessary resources and habitats, you can transform your backyard into a vibrant sanctuary for birds all year round. Here are some tips to get you started:

1. Offer a Variety of Bird Feeders

By providing different types of bird feeders, you can cater to the unique feeding preferences of various bird species. Tube feeders, suet feeders, and platform feeders are just a few examples. Fill them with high-quality bird food such as sunflower seeds, nyjer seeds, or mealworms to attract a diverse range of winged visitors.

2. Plant Native Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers

Native plants are not only aesthetically pleasing but also serve as valuable food and shelter sources for birds. Choose a variety of native trees, shrubs, and flowers that produce fruits, seeds, nectar, or attract insects - all valuable food sources for birds. Native plants also provide suitable nesting sites, contributing to the overall health of your backyard bird population.

3. Provide Fresh Water

A clean and reliable water source is essential for birds' survival and attracts them to your yard. Install a birdbath or a shallow water feature that allows birds to drink and bathe. Consider adding a small fountain or dripper to create the soothing sound of running water, further enticing birds to visit your oasis.

Meet the Birds of July

July brings an array of captivating bird species to your backyard. Let's take a closer look at some of the incredible birds you might encounter:

Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

The striking Blue Jay can't be missed with its vibrant blue feathers, black crest, and white chest. These intelligent birds are known for their distinct calls and mimicry skills, often imitating the sounds of other birds. They are frequent visitors to bird feeders, especially when provided with peanuts or suet.

American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis)

The American Goldfinch, also known as the Eastern Goldfinch, adds a splash of bright yellow to your backyard. These small songbirds are famous for their acrobatic flights and cheerful melodies. Their preferred food includes thistle and sunflower seeds, making nyjer feeders a popular choice for attracting them.

Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris)

The tiny Ruby-throated Hummingbird is a marvel of nature. With its iridescent green feathers and the namesake ruby-red throat of the males, these tiny birds are a joy to observe. Setting up hummingbird feeders filled with a nectar solution (4 parts water to 1 part white sugar) is the best way to entice these vibrant visitors.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Rich's Backyard Birds for July 2015 offer a glimpse into the diverse and enchanting world of backyard birdwatching. By creating a bird-friendly environment and attracting a variety of bird species, you can foster a deeper connection with nature and enhance your overall well-being.
