Just Bear-ly Out of Hibernation

iStock_000004947030SmallEarly spring until end of summer is bear season in New England. Now that they’re out of hibernation, they’re hungry. So, how do you attract birds, instead of bears, to your yard?

Give them food, water, and shelter. Once birds know any of these elements are available in our yards, it’s what brings them back again.

Bird BathBugs, Nuts, & Fruit Seed CakeFeed them mealworms. Dried mealworms are hassle-free and often come in seed cake blocks, which fit easily in suet cages. Bugs, Nuts, & Fruit seed block has mealworms, cherries, and more, which will attract an amazing assortment of birds to your backyard.

The Water Rippling Bird Bath will welcome birds with a rippling effect, so the water is easier to spot, plus it deters mosquitoes from laying eggs. Keep your backyard playful and pick the bird bath that best suits your style.

Duncraft Window View HouseGreat news! You don’t have to go outside, whether there’s a bear out there or not. With the Duncraft Window Bird House against your window you will have the best possible view of a nesting family.

Nesting MaterialYou don’t have a yard or a free window? Pick from our selection of nesting materials, which may be hung where it’s most convenient. Not every nesting material they use is healthy, like dryer sheets and lint, so this is especially important. These materials are dangerous because their structure weakens when wet and is not strong enough to support growing babies in a nest.

Colorful Bird HousesSpeaking of babies, you would love to see more activity in your yard. Invite a hotel of visitors with a bunch of different bird houses meant to attract titmice, chickadees, cardinals, finches, hummingbirds, and more. Climb on over to Duncraft to view our complete, colorful selection of bird houses. And remember, we all have to bear with it during bear season.
