If you put out bird feeders, select a safe feeder (less than 2" deep) and keep it clean.  Hose it out daily and sanitize it with hot soapy water and bleach at least weekly.  Polycarbonate plastic tube feeders are the easiest to clean.  The sound of dripping water is a magnet for songbirds.  Baths are most effective when placed out in the open, where birds can see predators coming.  Use one kind of seed per feeder, don't use seed mixes.  If you use a tray or bowl feeder, plan to sanitize it more often.

Landscaping your home for energy efficiency can reduce your heating and cooling bills, the largest component or your home's energy use.  Your overall landscaping strategy will, of course, depend on your regional climate.  On average, landscaping for energy efficiency provides enough energy savings to return an initial investment in less than eight years.

Instead of throwing away dryer lint to be brought to a landfill, you can place it in your yard for birds to pick up and use to feather their nest or you can use it as a firestarter in your fireplace or barbeque (just light it with a match to get a fire going - you can fill empty paper egg carton or toilet paper rolls with lint, seal with old wax, and break apart for an easy portable fire starter).

Defrosting foods by placing frozen items in the refrigerator overnight or using a microwave as opposed to using running water can save between 50 and 150 gallons of water per month.  Defrosting frozen items in the refrigerator is the most energy-efficient method because as the frozen item is defrosting, it keeps the inside of your refrigerator cooler so it doesn't have to work as hard, it spares the energy a microwave would use, and the frozen item will defrost more evenly.

Greenhouse gases are any other atmospheric gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect by absorbing infrared-radiation produced by solar warming of the Earth's surface.  These include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor.  Although greenhouse gases occur natrually in the atmosphere, the elevated levels, especially of carbon dioxide and methane that have been observed in recent decades are directly related, at least in part, to human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels and the deforestation of tropical forests.

Small fish tend to be more plentiful and better for your health because they contain less mercury (examples include squid, oysters, mackerel, sardines, and mussels).   The health of different species of seafood varies by region.  Alaskan seafood, such as salmon and halibut, when caught in sustainable ways, is generally good for you and the environment.
