Winter is a hard time for birds, their food is scarcer, and water can often be frozen.

At Toby’s Tails children’s books we love to feed the birds, we have a wide range which visit us from starlings and sparrows to the beautiful chaffinches. The old seed heads of the thistles, and suchlike provide food for the flocks of goldfinches which we enjoy watching. There are still some insects flying or crawling along the ground, however putting out extra food for them helps tremendously.

Bird tables can be bought or constructed very easily.

However, along with bird tables or instead of if you prefer you can buy or make feeders, here are a couple of suggestions on Youtube, there are many more tutorials available.

The birds will also be grateful for fat and seed balls which you can hang from trees, or your bird table.

This is a simple water feeder.

There are many species of birds and this useful video will help you to identify some you may see.

Enjoy your bird feeding and watching.

Susan and Toby
