Here rare some cool ideas if you feed birds in winter

You do not have to binoculars, an anorak and a dodgy hat to appreciate the beauty of birds carry.

A simple bird feeder in your yard will attract many different breeds as Robin, Greenfinch, Blue Tit, finches and more. You will have regular visits to your feathered friends if you give them the right bird food for winter.

Water is a necessity for birds that people tend to forget about winter. With the cold weather we are all easily accessible water, but cold winters could mean dry winters and freezes the water course. So make sure there is a fresh, ice free, bowl of water in the garden every day for them to drink and bathe in. Never feed milk because they can not digest. But cheese (grated if possible) is good for birds and new species to attract wildlife to your garden.

Choosing the right bird has been your first job. Not all birds will use perches on the stand, some will prefer to pick up on individual cases, seeds and animal hanging feeders. The more attention you pay to your visitors, the more you'll discover their habits and the preferred feeding areas.

If you are a bird, so I suggest a sturdy one that will not wobble. Birds tend to fly at the first sign of an unstable tripod. Place your table away from fences and walls, the birds will not thank you as an intruder Pounce cat while they eat. Their survival instinct warns them to avoid any risk of movement and they will be in doubt to return.

Besides the food.

Because insects are not available for the birds in winter, seeds, their main food.

There are a lot of mixed bird seed on the market in bulk milk. I tend to do something with unnatural colors to avoid lumps in them as they are usually dog ​​treat that can not be eaten unless softened by soaking. A good mix should millet, sunflower and corn flakes. I would also like the obvious choice of feeding peanuts, because they are high in fat, but not feed them salted peanuts, it can kill them. If a small bird can swallow whole peanuts, I used them to crush them before.

Black sunflower seeds are great all year round as well and they have a higher fat content than striped sunflower seeds. It is advisable to put a seed rich in curiosity and sunflower feeders, they will be expensive, and you will lose a lot of weather and other animals, if you just spread on the ground. The curious seeds contain more oil than the average seeds are high in calories, perfect for winter feed. Because they are not a cheap selection of seeds, you can always mix it with others. You will find the number of Goldfinches in your garden seeds increases with curiosity.

Wet dog and cat food is a good replacement for earthworms in the cold weather and kitchen waste can be used if they contain fat and carbohydrates that will not be found in bird seed. But do not feed cooking fat has hardened on the Sunday roast, because the bacteria and salt that are not suitable for birds contain. Instead, use lard or beef suet. It is strongly recommended by the RSPB suet fat balls not to leave nylon mesh so that birds can get themselves trapped. Instead, put them in hanging feeders and keep them away from the earth, as you may attract unwanted animals.
