Food is scarce for our winter birds. Consider putting out birdseed and suet for them during the winter months. H&S Feed & Country Store has a selection of birdseed, birdhouses, feeders, and supplies that your backyard birds are sure to love.
The winter season can be quite harsh for our feathered friends. From torrential downpours in the west to snow and ice in the east – everyone has been up against some fierce competition dodging the elements. So, how are our feathered friends doing?
Believe it or not, birds are very instinctive creatures and where there’s a will, there’s a way. They are wired to find food in these conditions and their bodies adjust to hang in there during winter months.
A few of the things birds do to adapt to the cold and snow is to eat less during winter, fly further south, and can even go a few days without food if necessary.
No doubt, birds are affected by the cold – especially the young and weak, however, they are survivors and do their best each season to brave the storm.
Some good food options to provide include black-oil sunflower seed, peanuts, and suet. These options are hearty and will keep bird energy levels high. Pet food, bread, and any of your dinner leftovers are not recommended. This will cause more problems by attracting mice, rats, and other unwanted pests.
Birds are amazing creatures and we still have a lot to learn. Remember to clean your feeders to prevent mold and bacteria growth and if you are looking for a new feeder, let us help! We have any and every type you need right at your fingertips – check it out!
