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:

  • Thank you for sharing some things to take into consideration when it comes to backyard renovation, this is very timely as I'm planning to turn a portion of my backyard into some sort of patio while maintaining a nice open lawn area as well. I saw some outdoor furniture and outdoor decor on this website and after reading this article, I checked them out again and I found more stuff that I would love to buy for my new patio.

  • Something is wrong with the Goldfinches in April 2021. I had to stop putting seed in our feeder because the birds seem to have a hard time flying. That attracts our cats, and I do not want to feed the cats. I have actually picked up two birds that seemed to be struggling to fly and tossed one into the air and another on a large pile of leaves. They took off, but they are very lethargic.

  • You are talking about "black oil sunflower seeds" but showing regular striped sunflower seeds. There is a BIG difference! There is MUCH less waste with the black oil seeds. Plus they are easier for small birds to eat. They are both shown here: https://www.horsefeedblog.c...

  • How long do other seeds stay fresk? Sunflower seeds? Millet? Safflower?
