DNR Provides Bird Feeding Tips for Winter [VIDEO]

 

LITTLE FALLS — As winter approaches and some birds migrate south, the Minnesota DNR provides you with some helpful tips for feeding the ones that stick around.

The DNR’s Marilyn Emerson says her passion for birds began with her parents, and she has been feeding birds ever since.

“When you feed them it brings the birds to you, and then you could see all the different varieties.”

Emerson has around twenty bird feeders in her yard, which attract many different types of birds.

“Throughout the winter we typically see chickadees, nuthatches, blue jays, and cardinals.”

To help the birds survive the cold winters Emerson says suet and black sunflower seeds are the best because of their high fat content.

“If you are going to feed them that is probably the best seed to use.”

If you would like more helpful tips on how to feed the birds this winter visit the Minnesota DNR website.
