Do You Feed the Birds in the Winter?

Having a bird feeder out year round is a nice way to attract beneficial wildlife to your casa, but it's extra important to keep your feeder stocked during the colder months. That's because birds often suffer from very limited food sources in the Winter, especially if there's an ice storm. Ice storms cover seeds and berries, preventing birds from eating them. If the ice is around for more than two days, the birds can actually starve to death! So, make sure to put some seeds out during the roughest weather. Source: Flickr User Noel Zia Lee

i don't put out food for the birds but i think i'll start now, seeing there's been snow covering out my house for more than a few days now!

I don't think the birds are at risk of starvation here in Atlanta, so I don't worry about it outside my condo. However, my grandmother up in upstate NY always had a birdfeeder outside her kitchen window and I used to love watching all the birds eat their breakfast while I was eating mine. If I move up north or have a kitchen with a large window, I will probably invest in a birdfeeder.
