Feeding Wild Birds

Winter (usually from October through April) is the ideal season to feed birds, because their natural foods are not abundant. By providing food for wildlife during severe cold weather, you can help them get enough food to maintain sufficient body heat. Feeding during the summer months is not as important, because their natural food source is readily available. But, some birds will visit your feeders year-round and thank you by hanging around scanning the area for insects to eat too!

Birds usually do not depend on only one feeder for their survival. It is more likely that they feed from several sources each day. Once you start a winter feeding program, be sure to continue until spring when the birds’ natural food sources are more abundant.

Types of Bird Feed

Sunflower seed or mixed seed are popular for use in feeders and will attract many songbirds such as cardinals, finches, and chickadees. Black Oil Sunflower seed is especially popular with bird enthusiasts. The outer shell of Black Oil Sunflower seeds are thinner and easier to crack than other types of Sunflower seeds. In addition, the kernel is larger than striped or white sunflower seeds. Black Oil Sunflower seeds also contain a large amount of fat; therefore they are especially good to use in the winter.

A suet feeder is typically a metal cage-like construction that contains a cake or block of suet to feed  woodpeckers flickers nuthatches, and many other species of insect eaters. Suet logs are also very common. These wooden logs have holes drilled out for suet to be inserted. Suet is high in fat which helps to keep birds warm and nourished during the cold winter.

Providing a varied array of tastes and feeding venues will result in less competition for food and dining spots, just as a well-planned garden will provide many plants that supply different types of seeds.
