We all know that birds love to eat bird food that we put out for them. In the winter and early spring, when there isn’t much food around for birds, offering the correct bird food can help them to survive the cold weather. If you are putting food out in the winter, remember to do it regularly, or hungry birds will lose valuable energy flying to an empty feeder. Also remember to clean away any bird food that is old, as some moulds can be dangerous for birds.
You can also use your bird feeding station to do an experiment, to find out how clever the birds in your garden are.
