Purple Finches & House Finches
are common feeder birds during
winter across much of the U.S.

The secret to bringing birds to your backyard is to provide diverse, appropriate habitat with vegetation that provides shelter and natural food. These plants--and a water element such as a bird bath or small pool--also help attract insects that are dined upon by many bird species. A variety of well-stocked, properly designed feeders will bring birds close for observation and photography.

The following links deal with various aspects of attracting and feeding birds.
