Don’t forget that a few hardy songbirds hang around during the winter months, even in the coldest climates. Life gets tough when water turns to ice and natural food sources are in short supply, and some may not make it to spring.
Many songbirds survive by shivering during cold weather, which generates heat. However, this depletes fat resources, which is replenished only by eating a hearty birdie breakfast. This is where you come in! It doesn’t take a lot of effort to lend a hand. Just roll out the welcome mat and enjoy the little entertainers all year round.
