Feeding Wild Birds in Winter

I always enjoy watching the variety of birds that gather and feast outside my window.

One of the easiest and most beautiful ways to observe and appreciate wildlife is by feeding the wild birds. Setting up a feeder on your property allows you to see avian visitors up close, and to understand the types of birds that frequent your neighborhood.

I have a number of feeders at my Bedford, New York farm, and all the birds love to come by and dine on the seed I provide. Feeding the birds is important - it helps to sustain local wild bird populations, especially during the cold, harsh winters and challenging migration periods. I hope these photos inspire you to take a closer look at the birds in your own yard - they are stunning animals. Enjoy…
