Wild Bird Feeding Industry

6 Steps to turn your yard into a Sanctuary for Birds

How many times do we see or hear news stories concerning birds and issues that affect them like conjunctivitis, cat predation, or window strikes? While we cannot control all the forces impacting the wild birds visiting our feeders, we can be responsible custodians of our food and feeders and the feeding environment.

Your customers want to know how to take care of their bird feeding equipment to do what they can to protect wild birds visiting their feeding stations. WBFI’s new brochure 6 Steps to turn your Yard into a Sanctuary for Birds identifies for consumers the basic steps they can choose to follow to be responsible backyard birders.

Why is the 6 Steps brochure important to your business?
WBFI promotes responsible feeding. Along with this responsibility to be mindful of the products we sell, goes the all-important objective to help the person feeding the birds to have a good experience so they continue to feed birds.
In order to help our consumers to be good stewards of the birds visiting their backyards, WBFI and the not-for-profit experts in backyard wild bird feeding compiled the information consumers need in the 6 Steps brochure. As our industry comes under increased scrutiny, WBFI supports you by making this important consumer tool available to you now.
