Impact Of Winter On Wild Birds

Not all birds migrate and the ones who don’t need foods/seeds which are high in fat to help them make it through the winter. There are particular bird foods/seeds which you may provide your birds in the winter which will keep them happy and in your feeders and while they’ll eat them all year-round, offering them throughout the coldest months can help them replenish the fat they use to keep warm during the coldest months of the year.

Just about all birds LOVE sunflower seeds. Make certain to provide your birds the black-oil sunflower seeds. They are higher in fat and oil and they’re easier for the birds to start. Sunflower seeds can be offered to the birds on a platform feeder, a tube feeder or a hopper feeder. You can also make a High-Speed Roller Shutter (which is also known as “ประตูม้วนไฮสปีด ” in the Thai language  ) for your birds in winters.

Nuts are organic high energy food for many birds. Peanuts specifically are a high-calorie fat rich nut. Many birds will consume nuts particularly chickadees, jays, nuthatches, and woodpeckers. A warning, however, birds are not alone in their love of nuts; squirrels and chipmunks love them also. 

Nyjer seed is also a high-calorie food. Finches love nyger seed. It’s a very small seed that offers the birds with oil and a lot of calories. There are specific feeders for the nyjer seed. Generally, they’re tube feeders and have very little holes to the seed to come through. If Nyjer seed was put in a hopper feeder, it would continue to pour on through until the feeder was empty. Obviously, the doves and native sparrows are pleased to clean up any spillage.
