7 TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL WINTER BIRD FEEDING

December 14, 2018

 

 If you live in an area that has extended periods of snow and ice on the ground, you may be surprised to learn that backyard bird feeding can make a real difference to the survival of birds during the winter months.  Here are 7 Tips for a successful winter bird feeding season:

  1. Use large feeders or multiple feeders to provide plenty of food especially during snowy and stormy months.
     

  2. Fill your feeders nutritious winter food, such as black oil sunflower seed, hulled peanuts, niger seed and white millet seed. 

 

  1. Add fatty foods, such as peanut butter and suet.
     

  2. Keep your feeders full.  Winter birds need to stock up on calories for those long, cold winter nights.
     

  3. Keep feeding through the winter. Birds grow accustomed to your feeders especially in harsh weather.
     

  4. Provide water.  Birds need water and can become dehydrated in winter even if surrounded by ice and snow.  Putting out a pan of water near the feeder on warmer days is a good idea.
     

Stamp down the snow below.  Ground-feeding birds will be able to gather up the seed that drop from the feeders if the snow is compacted down.
