Not all the birds in your area migrate (move away) for the winter. Some stick around all year. And others move in from other places. Birds can get hungry in fall and winter. Plants and seeds are harder to find and snow and ice can bury foods when birds need more calories to stay warm and hunt for food.
Let’s Get Started
Here’s a simple gift you can give the birds to help them get through to spring.
Document Your Discoveries
- Describe or draw the birds that you observe at your feeder in your Nature Notebook and add to your Bird Life List.
- Check out more ways you can feed birds and help other wildlife prepare and thrive this winter.
- Bonus: Report the types of birds you see at your feeder to Project FeederWatch. Their scientists will use your information to learn more about bird populations.
