The Joy of Bird Feeding

Share the Joy

The delight of seeing so many active and energetic birds at your feeders, and knowing that you are having a positive impact on the quality of their lives, makes feeding the birds a real joy; especially this time of the year. The best part is that this joy is available to everyone.

Across North America, over 180 bird species can be attracted to yards with the right food, water, and shelter. Any given yard can attract 60 or more kinds of birds. That’s a lot of joy and all of it right outside your window.

Winter is a great time to watch the different types of birds at your feeders. Woodpeckers are busy eating mouthfuls of suet. Juncos and sparrows hurriedly scour the ground for millet.

Finches take turns at the finch feeder. Jays raucously grab peanuts and nuthatches and chickadees industriously horde sunflower seeds.

Bird feeding is a fun and educational hobby, and this is the season to share it with everyone.
