3. Keep It Clean

Clean feeders and baths as well as feeding areas regularly.

4. Eliminate The Eliminators

Keep cats indoors. A 1997 study by the American Birding Association showed that cats were a significant source of mortality among birds that come to feeders.

5. Keep It Safe

Avoid using pesticides, herbicides or other dangerous chemicals where birds feed, bathe, or nest.

6. Remove Obstacles

Reduce window collisions. Keep feeders at least 3 feet from windows and add decorations to windows where collisions occur.source: wilddelight.com
