February is… Bird Feeding Month

Bird Feeding Month

Bird Feeding Month aims to raise awareness of the needs of our little feathered friends and keep them going until the spring weather kicks in. During the cold winter months, wild birds have greater difficulty finding food to sustain themselves. Small, backyard birds don’t have body fat stores to keep them going through the winter and so need regular feeding.

Food supplies are low due to the reduced vegetation, lack of insects and the sometimes frozen ground. Help them out by hanging tasty treats such as bird feeders filled with appropriate seeds, or suet and seed filled containers. Suitable food will be available in local pet stores and the store assistants should be able to give advice on choosing the right food for birds in the locality. Once the feeders are up, hours of pleasure can be had from backyard bird-spotting in anticipation of spring.
