It's easy to attract chickadees – the darlings of backyard feeders – to your yard. These non-migratory, investigative birds can be found in woodlands, residential areas and parks. Attract chickadees to your yard by offering them suet, sunflower seeds and peanuts. These acrobatic birds will use a variety of feeders – from window feeders to hanging feeders. You'll also attract chickadees by providing them with birdbaths filled with fresh, clean water for drinking and bathing. Chickadees readily use nest boxes, so hang them in wooded areas in your yard.
