On Do you put out a bird feeder or try to feed the birds in the winter?

Yes, but I put it only a foot off the ground. That way it is a bird feeder/cat feeder.

I fill the purple tires on my fences with cracked corn and milo. Sometimes sunflower seeds.

Mostly for the chickens. We need the eggs.

We have bird feeders and I put food out for squirrels and bunnies. I think we have a raccoon that is helping himself to our dog food. I also throw out old bread and apples. I try to keep water out too.

I apparently have been remiss, but disappointed_regressive has inspired me to make amends.

water is crucial right now. I have a much higher population due to providing water than I normally would. having several water sources of differnt depths has been important to them. So far there is plenty of food.

Yes, and everday is like a re-make of The Birds. They attack me and peck at my eyes. I installed a phone booth.

The crows flat out steal all of the suet cakes right out of our feeders.

Cardinals, chick-a-dees, and sparrows do not migrate. We had several Cardinals at our birdfeeder all winter long.

It is expensive to keep a bird feeder full . I don't have a pet so the birds are my fun watch.

Squirrels are a definite problem.

I used to put out a bird feeder during the winter but the squirrels would either eat all the seed in a few hours or destroy the feeder to get to it. Now I just scatter seed on the ground.

I thought the birds went south for the winter. We were going to in the spring, but if there are still birds around we might do it earlier.

I don't have enough tuppence to feed the birds. Besides, if you feed the birds, all you will have is fat birds. ---- Mary Poppins

No but its always fun to sprinkle dog food around the neighbors yard at night.

The birds at my feeder are voracious these days. Doesn't seem like there's much out there to eat.

Not so much right now...maybe later. We still have bugs about everyday. Not much stress.

No bird feeder, but all stale bread and leftover popcorn gets scattered across the back yard for our outdoor friends.

Water might be in great need these days.

I put out a feeder to give my cats something to watch out the window.
