Benefits of Attracting Birds to Your Backyard

Birdwatching is a fun hobby for many, but what you may not know, is that there are many benefits of attracting birds to your backyard besides the enjoyment of watching them. Here are some of the great benefits!

Natural Pest Control
Birds eat a variety of insects like aphids and mosquitoes that may be unwanted in your backyard or garden.

Weed Control
Some birds like finches and sparrows eat a large amount of weed seeds.

Some birds like hummingbirds and orioles drink nectar and help with the pollination of flowers. This can help give you fuller flowerbeds.

Health Benefits
Birding can help keep your mind active when you continue to identify and learn about the birds that are feeding in your backyard. It can also keep you physically active if you go out on walks in search of birds.
