Bird feeding is important because of the long-term benefits to our environment. At first glance, bird feeding supports the conservation of our wildlife, but birds are also one of the natural ways plants are spread and have the ability to thrive. Seed-eating birds disperse plants to new places which helps to revitalize our eco-system and increase healthy vegetation.
"Backyard bird feeding is the second-largest outdoor hobby (after gardening) in the United States." Bird feeding:
* Allows us to experience nature
* Encourages healthy birds
