Yankee Gardener Bird Lover's Paradise
Birdhouses, Bird Feeders, Bird Books, Bird Resources and More!

For many young and old alike, the observation of birds has been either a pleasurable pastime, a serious hobby or an obsession. Birds have been the subject of conservationists, models for artists in all mediums, identified in literature, theater and music. Their migration, feeding and breeding habits have been studied by numerous organizations. What is it about birds that fascinate us...? Is it the freedom they represent...? The ability to take flight on a whim...? Their wonderful song first thing in the morning or the last thing at night...?

There's no denying that something about finding a bird's nest or seeing the first robin of the season touches a special cord in all of us. This is why Yankee Gardener has created this comprehensive section of products and resources just for the bird lover in all of us.

Feeding wild birds is a wonderful way to enjoy and study nature. Millions of people every year set out winter feeders to entice winged wildlife to their backyards. Some of these feeders are gleefully accepted by hordes of hungry birds, some are patronized, but much of the food is never consumed, and still others are virtually ignored. Is there some secret to luring birds to your feeder...???
