This is the time of the year your feathered friends are very reliant on us for their winter food source. Research from a University of Wisconsin study shows that avian winter-survival rates are higher when both wild and feeder food options are available. Birds can be very reliant on us to assist with their winter fat intake and foods like bird seed mixes and suet can really help keep your back yard looking lively all through the winter.
Due to demands in the area and north of us, ice melt is quickly becoming harder and harder to find.
