One of the largest cohorts of birders we proudly service in our store is those that have recently decided to get into birding. As with any new hobby, there is somewhat of a learning curve to the birding world and for those already deeply involved, they can also attest to the “rabbit hole” effect this can have on your experience.
Addictive by nature (pun intended), bird watching is a soulful experience and for many of us, quickly becomes so much more than simply watching the birds. From the moment you hang your first feeder and fill it with one of our blends, you are immediately immersed in nature and you will soon find it to be a process you will look forward to again and again.
Progressing from the decision to becoming a backyard bird watching to actually hanging your first feeder is one wrought with choices. Determining what kind of birds you would like to enjoy might be your primary deciding factor but for the majority of those getting into the world of birding, the number one goal is usually to see as many birds as possible.
So how do we get from a feeder-less backyard to one brimming with avian activity? That’s the fun part!
Below we’ll break down some of our most popular seed presentation options and configurations for birders of all kinds.
