How To Help Birds In Winter

Placing a feeder in your garden and offering birds nutritious food will help them survive the cold winter season.

Bird feeders are most attractive to birds in winter, when natural food supplies are very scarce.

The best foods to offer birds in colder weather have a high fat or oil content that will provide abundant energy for winter survival, such as black oil sunflower seeds; other options are: cracked corn, millet, peanuts, cooked rice, halved apples, dry fruit, dry breakfast cereals, bird seed mixtures.

Help them survive the winter, and they’ll delight you with their songs and cute chirping. And it can be an educative activity, too, as a bird feeder will attract a variety of birds in your garden and you’ll get a free lesson in the birds’ habits.

If you place the bird feeder on a tree, make sure the cats won’t reach it.

You can make a birdfeeder from a tin can, just see in this video how your dog can help you.
