Feed Fruit for a Varied Diet

Have you ever wondered how to attract a variety of less common wild birds to your backyard feeders? Offer fruit!
No matter how you serve them – whole, sliced, or dried – you'll almost surely see birds you haven't seen before in your backyard. There are several ways to present fruit offerings. Offer a whole or sliced apple, a plum, or a handful of strawberries on a hanging skewer or on a fruit spike feeder. Or, place a couple of handfuls of grapes, cherries, or raisins on a platform or window feeder.
