- Put out apple pieces, raisins soaked in water, grapes & other fruit in hanging fruit feeders or open trays to attract American robin, cedar waxwing, finches & mockingbirds.
- Provide birds with a supply of high fat, high-calorie food like nyjer, peanuts, Winter Supreme Blend and suet to help them stay warm. These foods are especially important in extreme cold or when there is a heavy snowfall.
- Install a clear plastic weather dome to protect tube feeders from rain and snow.
- Put out suet and mealworms to attract insect-eating birds like northern flickers, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, wrens, bushtits, kinglets and yellow-rump warblers.
- Continue to supply fresh water in a heated bird bath or add a de-icer to a frost-proof bird bath to ensure a steady supply of water.
- Empty old seed before refilling feeders. Clean bird feeders and bird baths at least once a month with a weak bleach solution of 1 part bleach to 9 parts water to help prevent the spread of disease.
