|National Bird-Feeding Month|
The National Bird-Feeding Society is proud to host and sponsor “National Bird-Feeding Month." This national event was created to advance and publicize the wild bird feeding and watching hobby. Each February, we introduce and promote a new and unique theme. Our theme for 2011 is "Most Wanted - America's Top Ten Backyard Birds."
Most Wanted - America's Top Ten Backyard Birds
There are over 100 species of birds that visit bird feeders throughout the United States. For 2011, the National Bird-Feeding Society selected 10 species in two geographic regions to highlight. These 10 species are among the most colorful and widespread birds that use feeders, and will provide you with a wonderful, year-round, bird feeding experience. View America’s most wanted backyard birds.

"People feed birds for different reasons. For some, bird feeding is a fun hobby, while others want to help the birds by providing bird food. Whatever the reason you feed wild birds, bringing America’s top ten most wanted backyard birds to your yard will make for an enjoyable experience.” – National Bird-Feeding Society
