Wild Bird Feeding

Bird feeding has been a tradition from at least the times of early poets. It provides many of us with the chance to view birds and their behavior up close. It can also be good for birds as well as our pets, who may be fascinated watching them from a window. When is the best time for bird feeding during the winter, spring, and summer? It may seem obvious that winter is the prime time to feed birds due to the lack of natural food from seed bearing plants and trees. However, it is a delight to see a new species during the spring and summer months, when migrating birds stop for a treat. During the early summer months, you nay have visitors who are nesting in a nearby location. Remember, birds also need fresh water.
