Winterize Your Yard For Birds



If you attract birds to your yard in the summer, be sure to make it welcome for them in the wintertime too.

First, learn what kinds of birds you have. Many of them will be satisfied with sunflower or safflower seeds. Finches love thistleseed. Bird that eat on the ground will like corn, millet and other grains. Woodpeckers like suet hung in trees.

But the most important thing for birds is water. Make sure to have a birdbath and, if you live in an area where it gets below freezing, a heater to keep the water from turning to ice.

Your feathered friends will thank you with many hours of pleasure.
