Tips to help birds in Winter

Top tips to help your birds in Winter

Feed birds high fat, high protein foods, such as peanuts, suet, and fresh sunflower seed. Click here for more info.

Resist the urge to put out bread and corn as they are filling, but not nutritional for birds trying to live in the cold!

Use a tray or even a plastic bird bath dish to put seed out for ground feeding birds; resist the urge to broadcast (throw) seed which will be quickly covered up by falling snow and the birds won't be able to find it as easily.

Consider a heated bird bath; while cold showers don't sound enticing to us, birds must have clean feathers in order to puff up and keep warm.
