Most communities have a bird or pet store which can provide both supplies and information for keeping the birds in your yard happy. These businesses stock a variety of bird feeders, baths, and food, and have knowledgeable staff to advise you on what is best for local birds throughout the year. They can explain the different types of feeders available and which of the various seed mixes and suets are appropriate for the species which visit, or can be attracted to, your yard. These stores might also offer lectures on area birds or classes on bird feeding, and are a great source of answers for your backyard bird questions. Go check out your local bird store now, and develop a relationship to support them and efforts to help birds in your neighborhood.
