One of the things about attracting birds with houses and feeders is you need some yard art
, like a colorful windspinner, or wind tails, or whirligigs to place in an area you want birds to stay away form, such as a newly seeded flower or vegetable bed. Pictured here is the Cat Party Whirligig
that's sure to get the birds' attention. If you like something with more movement and color, there are lots of wind spinners
to choose from. These types of bright yard decor are very colorful and easy to stick. There are small spinners, rainbow striped hot air balloons and a few twisters to consider for protecting parts of the yard.
