Bird feeders in your garden or local parks help birds to survive snowy, cold month. Late winter and early spring are the hardest times for feathered friends. Adding a bird feeder to your garden in winter is a great way to attract more birds to your backyard in spring and summer, creating a bird-friendly environment around your home.

DIY bird feeders can turn unwanted materials that clutter your home into useful things. The projects are perfect for kids and adults. Surviving in winter cold is very difficult for small animals. The sad statistics show that only 2 of 10 birds survive winter cold and stay healthy until warm spring days come. An additional bird feeder hanging in front of your window or on a branch in your local park can save many birds from hunger and cold.
