Getting Your Birds to Stay for The Winter

In autumn we say good-bye to Neotropical migrants but we also welcome back winter bird residents. Continental migrants make their way southward into the States as their food supply dwindles. Other birds like Downy Woodpeckers and American Goldfinch are in our area all summer, just now returning to the yard. Woodpeckers and White-breasted nuthatches pick up where they left off at the suet and peanuts. American Goldfinch, now in their winter plumage, continue their acrobatic eating at the upside-down feeders. The yard is abuzz again with activity.

Now's the time to ensure that these birds visit your yard all winter. As the colder months draw closer, birds will visit your yard to take inventory; What kind of food can they find? How is the water supply? Is there shelter? Make sure your yard is appealing to these birds that are scouting the area. Read this article for Autumn tips on what to do.
