Advanced Birders really take birding to the next level.
Advanced Birders are likely to have a dozen or more feeders in their backyard including all sorts of shapes, types, and sizes. These birders have learned that a backyard designed with the right types of trees, flowers, etc. will keep the Song Birds coming year round.
Advanced Birders will purchase large bags of quality seeds such as safflower, Black Oil Sunflower, Peanuts, as well as Premium Mixes that may contain fruits and/or nuts. The addition of heated bird baths and running water to this environment make the Song Birds prefer to come to this backyard on a regular basis.
Advanced Birders will often add wildlife feeding to their backyard as an additional form of entertainment and/or a way to help keep squirrels off their feeders.
