True Blue and Warm, Too!Chickadee

It’s really hard to think of wild birds as being loyal friends.

After all, they are truly one of the freest creatures on the planet, able to fly anywhere at anytime with nothing to bind them to any single location.

But birds, like humans, are creatures of habit and bird banding studies have shown that many of our winter birds, such as Juncos and native sparrows, utilize the same wintering location year after year.

With a potential lifespan of over 10 years, it is likely that the Junco gleaning millet off of the ground below one of your feeders has spent many previous winters as your loyal backyard guest. And recent research shows that is only half the story!

These birds are not only loyal to a specific location, but also to a single feeder! The study showed that the only time they abandoned their favorite feeder was during periods of cold weather when the feeder was placed in a location too exposed to the wind.

So help your birds stay loyal and warm by locating your feeders in a sheltered location out of the wind. The east or southeast side of a house or near a row of trees or evergreens is ideal.

Once you have them in a safe and sheltered location, be sure to keep your feeders filled with the high-energy, high-fat foods that provide your birds with the crucial nutrition they need to survive the coldest month of the year.

Take a look inside for more of our expert advice and quality products that will help your birds to stay true blue and warm, too this winter.

How to Keep Your Birds Warm

Keeping winter backyard birds warm is as easy as offering rich, high-energy foods and open water sources.

EcoTough Tail Prop Suet Feeder

Offering Fats with Fruits

    Suet is a great winter food. A pure fat substance, suet provides high energy when insects are more difficult to find. We have many suet choices with additives such as fruits, nuts and insects to make them even tastier to the birds. Full of essential fat, fruits and more, Nuts & Berries Suet and Jim’s Birdacious® BugBerry™ foods are sure to keep your birds warm.
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.
