These last few weeks we have been enjoying watching the many different types of birds that have been showing up at our bird feeder. I think our new little kitten is enjoying them also as he will spend hours watching from the top of the couch.
With the cold temperatures it is even more important to make sure your bird feeders are full at all times. There are so many different types of bird food out there but the main thing is to buy good quality seed which you can find at your local independent garden centers. Also, knowing which seed will attract which birds.
Having one of our handy waterproof field guides to backyard birds will help a lot in figuring out what birds are coming to your yard. From there you can read this article we have about the different types of seed your feathered friends will love.
