How to Help Your Birds During Winter

Downy Wdpkr on suet There are many ways to offer suet and other high-fat foods.

EcoClean Finch Feeder WBU EcoClean™ Finch Feeder

Ground Feeder

WBU EcoTough® Covered Ground Tray

You can help your birds stay warm by offering the right foods that have an attractive blond of fat, protein and carbohydrates.

High-fat Foods for Feeder Birds

  • Offer suet, Jim’s Birdacious® Treats and blends with nuts to help birds, such as woodpeckers, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, wrens and others, maintain their high metabolic rate.
  • Suet is a no-mess, high-fat food that attracts nut- and insect-eating birds.
  • Jim’s Birdacious Treats, like Bark Butter® and Nutty for Nuts™, are full of essential fat, protein, fruit and more.

 

Nyjer® (thistle) for Finches

  • Nyjer is 50% fat and protein, and it’s a favorite of goldfinches, Pine Siskin and Purple and House Finches.
  • Nyjer has a thin shell that small-billed birds can easily open - saving them time and energy as they eat their food.
  • Specially designed to hold small seeds and accommodate small-billed birds, our EcoClean™ Finch Feeders are the best feeders for offering Nyjer. They contain antimicrobial product protection, and their Quick-Clean® removable base makes them easy to clean.

 

 

 

 

Seed Blends for Ground-feeding Birds

  • Our Deluxe Blend is loaded with sunflower and safflower seeds and millet.
  • Millet is high in carbohydrates and is especially good for attracting ground-feeding birds, such as native sparrows, juncos, towhees, quail and doves.
  • Offer Deluxe Blend in a ground feeder like our EcoTough® Covered Ground Tray.

Tidy Seed Cylinder Feeder

Energy-packed Cylinders

    Bird food cylinders are a win-win for you and your birds. Cylinders, like the Nutty for Nuts, are long-lasting allowing you fewer trips to fill the feeder. The birds stay longer eating at the feeder instead of grabbing a morsel and quickly flying away to eat it elsewhere. Nutty for Nuts is packed with high-calorie peanut and tree nut energy to help the birds stay warmer. There are no shells, providing a quick energy snack for birds and no mess for you.
    Robins in Bird Bath

    Open Water = Warm Birds

      Water sources in winter are a wonderful way to attract a variety of birds, such as the American Robin, that don’t normally visit feeders. They provide a reliable source of water for bathing and drinking. Bathing is especially important in cold weather to keep feathers in top condition. Available drinking water allows birds to maintain a healthy metabolism to stay warm. Use a heated bird bath or add a heater to your existing plastic, metal or stone bird bath. This will help make some water, available even on the coldest day.
