Winter Bird Feeding

 Chickadees, nuthatches, brown creepers, jays and woodpeckers all love peanut pieces. Add some to your seed mix, or hang a special peanut feeder to attract extra attention.
 High-fat, high-calorie suet is the perfect food to help birds get through longer nights and colder temps. Don’t be afraid to place them right outside your window for prime viewing.
  Put out a seed block, making sure it’s heavy on high- fat sunflower and nuts that birds love. Avoid seed balls with mostly millet and milo.
 After the holidays, recycle your Christmas tree to give birds a convenient cover. You can also hang up seed ornaments and other treats.
