You may have a bird feeder where you can put seeds, pellets, cooked rice, chapatis and left over food. Birds especially love toast crumbs and bread along with milk. As for the humble crows you may give them anything they gorge on it! bones and cartilage cut in small pieces of chicken, mutton or fish parts are what crows love and have a hearty meal of it.
Our Alexandrine parakeet especially loves nuts. Badam and Pista are an important part of her breakfast menu. Love birds feed on bread crumbs, chapati, cooked rice, leaves of spinach, corriander, suva, methi leaves along with their seed pellets.
How to attract birds to your Terrace garden- I have seen many great gardens, landscaped professionally after spending lots on it, but no birds. Birds do not come on their own. You have to be patient after planting bird friendly trees and plants. Put up a comfortable bird house nearby on a tree if possible. A bird bath or water fountain is a welcoming sight as smooth flowing water is considered very auspicious especially in feng shui.Have this water feature in the north if possible or center of your terrace garden.
Feed them with food everyday, you may have specially cooked food if their are karmic issues to be resolved or left over daily food can be put up on a corner or space where birds can see and can easily eat it.Do not expect them to feed from your hands immediately, give them some time to be familiar with the environment and you. After they learn to trust you you will be happy they even feed from your hand!
