It seems it’s getting colder by the day. My birdfeeders are seeing increased traffic as the birds are spending more and more energy to stay warm. During the winter months I not only provide a variety of seeds but also suet, a great high-energy food for this time of year. I love watching the organized chaos!
When you provide a variety of food to your backyard birds you will notice each species has their own preference. For instance in my backyard I’ve noticed the woodpeckers love suet, chickadees love peanut butter and the sparrows and finches stick to the seeds for the most part.
