Share This:

As we move into February, also known by birders far and wide as National Bird Feeding Month, I thought I’d share my favorite tips for feeding birds during the remainder of our cold winter days.   And please pay special attention to the don’ts listed below, too!

Happy birding!  🙂

  1. The most important change from fall feeding to winter feeding is to decrease the proportion of millet mix from 30 to 40 percent in the fall to about 10 percent in the winter as the migrant sparrows and juncos move farther south.

  2. A large-scale winter storm, with deep snow or ice cover, cuts off many birds from their natural food supplies and can actually cause them to starve by the thousands and even millions.

  3. By understanding which birds are around in winter and what they need to eat, both novice and experienced backyard birders make the most of their feeders during the coldest months of the year.
