How to Prepare Your Yard for Spring

With the right additions, your yard can be even more attractive to visiting birds.

Bird Feeding Stations

Adding a WBU Advanced Pole System® bird feeding station with new feeders can help attract more birds to your yard. More feeders, spread farther apart, can reduce overcrowding and help lessen birds’ stress.

Also, by offering new or different foods in your new feeders, you’ll attract a greater variety of birds to your yard.

Bird Baths

Birds need water to keep their feathers in top-flight condition and for good insulation on cool spring nights. Add a bird bath to attract more birds including those who don't typically eat bird seed.

Clean your bird bath with a 10% bleach solution. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry. Refill with fresh water at least twice a week.


During spring clean-up, help your birds by allowing some natural nesting materials such as small twigs, leaf mulch, pine needles, bark strips and moss to remain.  Consider hanging a WBU Nesting Ball.  Offer calcium-rich foods like our new Nesting SuperBlend, SuperSuet and Bark Butter products.
