And what can be more charming then to see these guests drooling on your offerings. Here are few fruits which you can use to attract such birds…
Watermelon– Hummingbirds have sweet tooth, and therefore nectar water is kept in gardens to attract them. You can welcome these lovely guests with slices of watermelon and they will love having them for sure.
Oranges– Oranges have a strong fragrance which attracts birds like orioles, scarlet tanagers, mockingbirds, grosbeaks and other fruit-lovers. Keep them in bunches, but at a little distance from each other for a group of birds to feed on them easily.
Apples– Fruit loving birds such as mockingbirds, orioles, grosbeaks, buntings, catbirds, wrens and waxwings as well as many others enjoy having this fruit, so dont be afraid of using it in your garden.
Grapes– Its always better to hang fruits at corners where you think birds will definitely come. Keeping them at a grounded place will attract ants and other insects, so its always better to hang them. Place grapes and berries on a toothpick and screw them on an orange like this to attract birds.
