How to help birds in winter


With all the snow on the ground and the berries disappearing off the trees and brushes, it’s hard for birds to find food, but para educator Pam Bader has helped many birds find food on her farm between Readlyn and Denver.

“My birds like to eat sunflower seeds,” Bader said. “They eat 40 pounds in one week. I have seen 36 cardinals at one time. I also see black-capped chickadees, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, house finches and red-bellied woodpeckers. These birds also eat suet. The downy woodpeckers let me get within 12 inches from them. We have a lot of trees such as pine trees, oak trees, maple trees and fruit trees.”
