Columnist Julie Zickefoose muses on how wildlife handle frigid temperatures, and provides help through food and habitat to make their lives a bit easier during the winter. Also, Why are there so few birds at your feeder right now? Bill Thompson, III, discusses why birds might be steering clear of your feeders at this time of year.
