The Color To Avoid On Your Porch If You're Trying To Attract Birds
If you're planning to repaint your porch and want to attract birds, you should consider using red or earth tones. However, it's best to avoid one color that might deter them.
According to Anne Marie Johnson from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Project Feederwatch, "Large amounts of white, like a white house, might be less appealing to non-white birds.”
The stark contrast between non-white birds and a white porch increases the likelihood of these birds being spotted by predators, leading them to avoid such areas to stay safe.
