Fill Your Bird Feeders

Just a little reminder to fill your bird feeders this winter. Many birds may fly south, but those in the northern states have birds come in the winter, too. Add a birdseed bell and suet blocks on a low branch near the feeder and you can enjoy watching the little birds come to feed on bitter snowy winter days. Here is a photo of a male cardinal that comes to my feeder along with his mate, all year round!

Great timely notice. Although I feed my birds all year round - breeding season is important too.

Some tips:

Try to buy your wild bird seed in bulk.

If you use a table or other platform mix seed with kitchen scraps, especially fruit, fat and veg.

If you use more than one hanging feeder spread them around; birds tend to fight over "their" feeder.

Watch out for four legged visitors - squirrel proof feeders are available; but use only if needed.

Keep an eye on the water - refresh when neccessary.
