Feeding The Birds During Winter

Here are some ways to attract birds to your yard during the fall and winter months.

Beef suet can be hung from November through April. The birds will eat it frozen as well.

Clean out the birdhouses that have been used throughout the Spring and Summer. Also add additional birdhouses to your yard. Birds that stay around will use them for warmth and protection during the cold winter months.

If you do not get to cleaning up your yard, that's okay for a bird. Birds will use the dead leaves as cover and will eat any seeds they find on the ground.

Birds need water, a heated bird bath or fresh water source filled daily will encourage them to come to your yard to drink and bathe.

A variety of feeders such as seed blocks, thistle tubes and sunflower seeds will attract goldfinches, chickadees, titmice and sparrows just to name a few.
