It’s Time to Feed the Birds!

The red of this cardinal at the bird feeder is beautiful against the snow.

Just in time for Christmas, we now have snow on the ground. That means we need to take extra care of our feathered friends.

As the weather gets colder and snowier, natural food sources birds depend on become more scarce. The birds need supplemental food sources like our backyard bird feeders to get them through the winter. Black Oil Sunflower Seed is a good all-around feed for most birds and usually pretty easy to find. It is also helpful and very important to put out fresh water for the birds so they can stay hydrated. While the birds will appreciate your feeder wherever you put it, putting the feeder near trees or shrubs give the birds cover and more comfort in approaching the feeder.

Tip: It is very important to clean your feeder regularly to help eliminate harmful bacteria.

Now sit back and enjoy!
