It’s no secret that birds fly south for the winter. For a wide variety of species, mild-wintered San Antonio is south enough.
Roving flocks of warblers, vireos, sparrows, waxwings, wrens, kinglets and more join our year-round residents like cardinals, jays, chickadees and titmice.
And while seed and suet do a fine job of attracting birds to your landscape, fresh, sparkling H2O will fascinate the flocks of feathered friends that flew in for winter.
- Add a simple bird bath or shallow water feature to your garden.
- Drop in textured rocks or a bit of gravel to provide footing for the birds.
- Place it where the water can be warmed by the winter sun, but close enough to vegetation should the birds need a quick escape.
Most importantly, keep it clean. Scrubbing and refilling regularly will help keep your birds healthy, happy and coming back for more.
