It's All About Birds
In Your Garden!
Welcome! I'm Ian Traynor and I'm "nuts" about garden birds! Well,
nuts about birds everywhere, really.
Watching birds in your garden or backyard is really so easy.
And it helps anyone to appreciate the wonder of the wild life
which is all around us - even in the heart of our big cities.
The aim of this site is to help garden bird lovers everywhere
to enrich their garden bird watching experience.
With my wife, Ruth, we've travelled the world watching birds
- and we've seen a lot of very different gardens and garden birds.
What we've found, in North and South America, in Trinidad, in
West Africa, in Nepal, in Israel, in Morroco and in the Seychelles
is - if you put food out in a garden, you will get birds!
Which food you put out will determine what kind of birds you
attract. It can be quite a science knowing exactly what to do
for the best.
So, in this website, I've collected articles and news feeds
from some of the best resources to help you to help the birds.
And to help you to get enjoyment from watching the wildlife spectacular
in your own garden or backyard.
