Feeding the Birds

In the summer, I never feed the birds - I feel there's enough around without me having to help out. But in the winter, I really feel the birds struggle finding enough food. Especially since we continue to destroy their habitat. I have lots of hollies for the birds and bees and other food sources in the yard and I try to keep fresh water for everybody.
We're supposed to have some really cold (the weatherman said BITTER) weather toward the end of this week so I bit the bullet and bought some bird seed. I just put up the feeders and I'm waiting - they'll be along.
