I went to my native nursery and brought home an Atriplex lentiformis, or quail bush. I don't put out seed except in my traps for predators (house cats are not welcome). Instead of a bowl, plant a native bush, something lovely that provides shelter, food, and nesting to your little bird friend. Lay out mulch to attract bugs so that the birds can forage naturally for their absolute favorite foods. It worked for me.

Also I agree that planting thing that will attract them is a great idea! Research what your bird species likes best and what will grow where you live.
From observing our wildlife for several years, I have notice that they like what is natural to them. An example is that we furnish water for our birds though when it rains they prefer to get their water from the creek that only has water when it rains. When that dries up they will be back to get our water.
Wishing you the best.
