Feeding wild birds is a shared pastime for many of us and what could be easier and more convenient than having your garden do the feeding? Learn how and what to plant to attract birds year-round.
In spring, during the nesting season, birds feed heavily on insects. But during winter, whatever insects are around are dormant and only certain birds hunt for them. Woodpeckers and nuthatches clamber around on the trunks of trees, looking for insects (or their eggs) hiding under the bark, while wrens hunt through the logs in the woodpile.
