Now that it’s officially fall, birds are out scouting. They are on the prowl for the best backyards, which from their perspective means the yards that provide an abundance of food. As it gets colder and natural sources of food freeze up or wither away, they will remember the places where bird feeders abound. Set up your bird feeder now and the birds will consider it an early invitation for a winter visit.

Now is the time to plant bird-friendly plants that will feed your feathered friends come spring. While fall is scouting time for birds, it’s planting time for humans. Autumn's cooler weather is gentle on plants, yet the soil is still warm enough for roots to thrive as they settle into their new surroundings. Plus, there are more good-weather days for planting than in early spring, when it tends to rain a lot more. The National Audubon Society has a helpful database of native plants that are appealing to birds because of their seeds and fruits.
