All about backyard birds

If you plan to attract and feed doves at your home or backyard, it is a simple and easy activity. Doves stay in one place all-year round and can be seen at any time of day looking for food and around feeding stations. If you install a special dove feeder these birds will come in small flocks and will happily eat at the seed provided.  

The doves are larger birds than smaller song birds, and can be only feed at special platform feeders. Dove are natural ground feeding birds, and you will see them always on the ground looking for food and stuff. Smaller bird feeders are not going to do for this bird, and if you want them to eat you must install a larger platform feeder.

The bigger the better in this case, the more area you provide the more easy will doves land on the bird feeder.
