Supply treats for your favorite birds, and some may sing for their supper.
Birds appreciate supplemental food and fresh water, especially in fall and winter. You can stop feedings in summer, but a continuing supply of food will encourage birds to nest and raise young in your yard.
Attract your favorite bird -- with its favorite food!
