GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. – Birdwatching is the second largest recreational activity in the country, and it's something you can do from the comfort of your own backyard.

Judd Brink, owner of Minnesota Backyard Birds, came by KARE Saturday with some tips on birdscaping to attract the types of birds you want.

Judd says that birdwatching can be done easily, right at your home, with the proper feeder and seed. He also showed us how to "squirrel proof" bird feeders.

Minnesota Backyard Birds offers birdscaping in the Brainerd Lakes area of central Minnesota. Judd Brink has been feeding and watching birds for over 30 years.
