It’s cold and windy outside today, a sudden appearance of winter in Ontario. While I sit inside all cozy, the birds have been circling our feeders all day. I imagine they need a lot of fuel to stay warm right now. Most birds thrive on seeds in winter, since insects and fruit are harder to find naturally this time of year. Thankfully, my husband was a trooper and wandered outside yesterday to fill up the feeder outside our kitchen window. Now the birds get a treat, and so do I.
