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.
