Backyard Birds

Minimizing Mess Feeding Birds


Welcome to The Backyard Naturalists, the show about anything and everything connected with nature.

How many times have you placed a bird feeder outside your home or business . . . only to take it back down a few weeks later because of the mess? There’s discarded seed all over the ground, unwanted weeds germinating and shells everywhere. If this has been your experience, Debbie and Laurie created this episode just for you.
