Stock up on wild bird feed and store in a steel garbage can or rubber/plastic sealed container to prevent unwanted intrusion by mice and other hungry critters. We buy 50# bags of seed from Somerset Grain & Feed, a local store that provides excellent pricing and customer service.
Make sure your bird feeders are clean and in good shape. We keep our feeders for many years but they need to be maintained to keep birds healthy. Make sure you clean them out well to remove dirt and green stuff that can accumulate if feed gets wet from the elements. Hot water, soap and a long narrow scrub brush will do the trick nicely.
If you are seeking some new feeders that the birds will love, check out the feeders we feature and use by clicking HERE.
And, remember to buy a heating element to keep your birdbath water from freezing over. We recommend one we've been using for 17 years and may be found by clicking HERE.
If you've planted your yard with plants that bear fruit and seeds, or have holly trees, you are providing the birds with a natural food source to sustain them through the winter. Robins especially go for the red berries on the Holly trees.
Your birds will seek out your yard as you've created a haven in which they can thrive.
