How to have more baby birds in your yard next spring


Birdwatcher’s Digest reports that increased supplemental feeding (birdfeeders) during cool weather leads to greater nesting success (more baby birds) the following spring. Just make sure you use FRESH seed and fresh suet.

Sleepy time     During cool weather, at night, birds conserve energy and warmth by putting themselves into a state similar to hypothermia, which slows down their breathing, heartbeat and metabolism. Thus saving their energy.
