Information on feeding birds
Garden birds are birds seen in and around gardens. A garden is an area around a house or residence, ranging from a lawn or vegetable patch to a grown garden with trees and bushes. Garden birds sometimes make a garden their territory in the summertime, making nests in trees or roofs and raising their young ones there. These can also be birds that come into the garden in search of food or shelter any time of the year. These can also be Icelandic non-migratory birds or foreign winter guests and vagrants.
