We've have had some super cold weather the last few weeks. Temperatures from 2° to 20°'s . These temps do not count in the wind factor, which makes it feel even colder. We had a little snow that just will not melt. I go outside long enough to fill the feeders and add some water to the heated bird bath. In that amount of time, my face and fingers are hurting from the cold. I am just not a winter or cold weather person, I am counting the days till spring. Yes, I am a wimp! Spring can not come fast enough for me.
I have been putting out peanuts in the shells for the Blue Jays, they love the peanuts.
I've been throwing some seed on the ground after feeling sorry for the ground feeding birds.
The Carolina Wren will eat anything, but the suet is a favorite.
The Mourning Dove is a ground feeder, I have put some Sunflower seeds on the deck for them to eat.
When the temperatures drop it is important for the birds to find food that helps to keep their bodies warm. I help them by providing the seed and suet and a heated bird bath for their water source. It is easy to do and just a little thing since I enjoy watching the birds.
As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.
