Decorate a Tree For Your Winter Birds.....
Birds are not picky - If you choose to decorate a big tree or a small tree in a bucket, the birds will be happy either way:)Don't forget, your winter birds are going to be thirsty and most available water sources are frozen so a small amount of water in a dish, pail, pan or even a fancy warming pond will go a long way to quench your feathered friends thirst - I have a small clay pan which I fill daily and sometimes more than once a day if the weather is severe, placed next to the "Bird Winter Tree".
Be sure to decorate early to give birds plenty of time to find the food before the weather is at its harshest - it can take a week or two for birds to become familiar with the tree. Make lots of ornaments and replace them as needed all winter long to provide an attractive and effective feeder for your winter birds. Please do not begin to feed and then stop - that is just cruel.
