Welcome to Watching Backyard Birds.com, the companion site for Watching Backyard Birds! WBB is the sister publication to Bird Watcher's Digest, but focuses squarely on the backyard, where the vast majority of bird enthusiasts do most of their bird watching. In creating this magazine and this website, we asked ourselves, "What do backyard bird watchers want and need to enjoy their backyard birds even more?" We've tried to strike the right balance between fun and practical—and we hope you enjoy the result!

Here are some of the features you'll see on this website:

  • This is a good point. While cleaning mine, I kinda got the impression the cheep cheeps were waiting on me since they started chirping as soon as I brought it outside again. I swear they are so smart. Within five minutes of filling the feeder up, they are there to feast.cheers Cheep cheeps!

  • Hahaha, I love the ending remark "that area will have already been well -fertilized!"I've noticed that there are more cheep cheeps right after I clean the bird feeder compared to how many there are right before it was cleaned...so cheep cheeps do like and appreciate a well maintained feeder and they are worth the effort. : )

  • The storm saying seems true so far. We had as party at our bird feeder right before our last storm... 6 at once but different cheeps cheeps would come and go so there were more than 6 for sure..and squirrels eating with the birds

  • I know and do clean my feeders both for seed and for hummingbird liquid. I have a vase full of different size brushes that are only for this purpose. I have friends however who NEVER clean their feeders or bird baths, and it’s gross! I am ringing this article and will have to give out to the few offenders I know. I can’t imagine looking at such mess and not cleaning it, but not everyone thinks resale. Part of responsible bird watching/loving is to make the time and take the effort to do this.
