Identify a good spot in your garden or backyard. Look for a spot that you can watch from your kitchen or living room window or someplace where you spend a lot of time. And remember, there will be a lot of mess from bird droppings, so the spot should be in a place that’s easy to clean. The feeder should be conveniently placed near a door or window so you can fill it and should be out of reach to squirrels. Separate feeders with different seeds will attract a variety of birds.
