Don't forget the birds
« on: Dec 23, 2010, 09:54:54 AM »
I don't know about everyone else but I get great pleasure in having birds in my garden in the summer so in the winter I put food and water out every day.  Birds struggle for water the most as even with the snow they can often get berries.  I have found over the years that the peanut feeders are best but I also put a tray of mixed seed out but make sure I clear the snow off it every day.  Even if I have to throw it away (on the garden, they can eat it when it thaws) it does not cost much and the birds certainly already know they can get food and water at my house despite there being no one living here for quiet a while.
