If you are just getting started in bird feeding, or if you are frustrated by a lack of success in attracting winter birds to your feeders, try offering these ten foods.
We all know that birds can survive without our help in the winter. Some ornithologists have even suggested that bird feeding is more beneficial to us (humans) than it is to the birds. Be that as it may, studies have shown that birds with access to bird feeders in winter survive at a higher rate than birds that don’t.

There are many activities we can enjoy as backyard bird watchers. Check out some suggestions.
