Help Birds Survive Cold Weather
15% OFF ALL Birdbaths & Feeders*
(Now thru Tue. Jan. 10th)*
Typically, your feeders serve as a supplemental food source for birds. In contrast, during periods of extreme cold and severe winter weather, your birds may switch to using your feeders as a critical source of food that enables them to survive from day to day. So make sure your foods are worth their weight with quality high-calorie, fatty foods.
You can play a vital role, as feeding the birds becomes critical when extremely cold conditions occur. At these times, a reliable supply of energy-heavy food can mean the difference between life and death for a bird. To stay warm, birds will expend energy very quickly, some losing up to 10% of their body weight on extremely cold nights. Food is the most essential element, providing birds with the crucial energy and nutrition they need to survive. Stop by our store for more expert advice and quality foods that are worth the weight to help your birds thrive this winter.
