Keep those feeders stocked
Spring is a magical time. Things beginnning to green up, critters are doing the birds and the bees thing and the birds are beginning to look for nests to raise the next generation. What a great time to fire up the backyard birding photography. Really all you need are the basics to attract them to your outdoor space. Food, water and shelter. Like the field of dreams, they will come. It may not happen overnight, but they will begin to show up and that is when you can be ready with your camera.
Once the birds find the source of food and other things they need to survive, they will surely invite friends and before you know it, you will have plenty of photo opportunities. Just one thing you have to do is keep those feedrs stocked.
