I have had at least one bird feeder, usually two, and a hummingbird feeder for years. It's a miracle to me that one or two ounces of fluff can live through the terrible cold we've had in PA this winter. I also hang a suet block in a holder. They're available in the grocery store and dept. stores with a holder and hanger. The fat they contain help the birds make it through the winter.
I urge everyone to feed the birds in this weather. I get (depending on the season) sparrows, cardinals, mourning doves, blue jays, red and black grosbeaks, finches, woodpeckers on the tree, and it seems that every year I have to get out the bird book to identify a new guest just passing through. Of course I get grackles, blackbirds, and crows. I have a catbird (looks like a mockingbird) who comes and builds a nest here every year, the wrens who do the same, and robins, of course, but they don't eat the seed. It's a joy to see them. Also, at the back window, tufted titmouse and chickadees. They're little acrobats. Please feed them!
