Help Birds Deal With March Weather

In March & April birds' natural food supply is at its lowest point of the year. Insect populations are low or non-existent, and the few remaining wild fruits and berries are either hidden or undesirable.

Unpredictable weather doesn't make life any easier. Sunny, warm, spring-like days can quickly turn into cold, damp conditions that challenge birds' survival skills.

Because of these challenges, you have one of the best opportunities of the year to help the birds.

High-energy foods, such as peanuts and suet, are loaded with fat and protein, and they're wonderful substitutes for the insects many birds would eat if they could find them.

And speaking of insects, have you offered mealworms to your birds? Numerous birds eat protein-rich mealworms, which are lifesavers when temperatures begin to slide. We sell meal worms and other quality food for your backyard friends.

Most birds will adjust their feathers to create air pockets that will help them keep warm. You will often notice the birds look fatter or "puffed up" during cold weather. This is because the birds are fluffing up their feathers; the more air space, the better the insulation.
 
You can play a vital role in helping birds during winter by offering high-fat, high-calorie foods, such as sunflower, nuts, suet and Bark Butter® Bits. A  reliable, open source of water is also important. Birds continue to need a source of water for drinking to maintain their metabolism during dry, cold weather. Clean feathers help birds stay warm, and a bird bath is often the only way for some birds to drink and keep their feathers in top condition when it's cold.
