According to Born Free USA, nearly 12 percent of the world’s almost 10,000 bird species are in danger of extinction.

Creating a Wildlife Habitat in Your Backyard

Build a Bird House

Birds need housing, just like every other animal. As we continue to deforest large swaths of the planet for development, it’s imperative for us to create birdhouses to make up for – even just a fraction – the loss of habitat they face everyday.

Feed the Birds

Bread crumbs, nuts, and seeds. If you got some trail mix you don’t want anymore, birds would love you. In fact, if you have chickens you can actually feed them most food and table scraps and they’ll gobble it right up.
