Helping the Wild Birds

During this time of year, the bird feeders at my farm are filled with chirping hungry wildlife.

Winter is a difficult time for wild birds, especially here in North America - days are short, nights are often cold and long, and natural food supplies are scarce or hidden by snow. I have a number of feeders at my farm, and all the birds love to come by and feast on the seed I provide. I also set out fresh water and cut holes in the burlap covers over the boxwood, so birds are able to shelter safely. Helping the wild birds is important to sustain local wild bird populations, especially during the harsh winters and challenging migration periods.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
