What to do with an orphaned bird
If it is mostly fully feathered and not obviously injured, almost all of the time, leaving it alone is the best thing. While leaving it alone, try to keep children and animals away. A parent is probably nearby and has encouraged it to leave the nest, and is still bringing it food....read more
Improve the Bird watching in your back yard - by Bill Chitty
For birding in your own yard, assuming they are in their home range, the variety of birds mostly depends on the variety of available food and habitat. If you are satisfied with seeing Northern Cardinals and Tufted Titmice, all you need is a few bushes, a feeder and a bag of sunflower seed.

In the last two years, I have identified 69 different species [see list] of birds from my yard in western Putnam County, about half way between Palatka and Keystone Heights. I am only a mediocre birdwatcher, so that’s not counting the dozens I’ve seen but haven’t been able to positively identify. So how do I see 69+ species, and someone else in the same area only sees 4 or 5?

Over half those birds are simply because of habitat. But 26 different species were on or in the immediate vicinity of the feeders and bird houses on the property. Most of those 26 bird species can be coaxed into your backyard.
