Feed the Birds Day
Date When Celebrated : Always February 3
Help the wild birds in your backyard to survive the long, cold winter by feeding them. That's exactly why this special day was created. Mid and late winter are especially hard on all outdoor animals. By mid winter, food sources become scarcer and scarcer for the wild birds that over-winter in your backyard. What little food that is available, can get buried under deep snow. The bird feeder that you place in you backyard, in view of your picture window, may be entertaining to you as a bird watcher. It is also vital to the survival of birds in harsh winters.
Take today as an opportunity to begin a new and fun hobby... bird watching. Place a feeder in a location where it can be seen from indoors. Make sure to keep it full of seeds all of the time. Once birds are attracted to your feeder, you have effectively adopted them. They become dependent upon the seeds in your feeder.
Winter Bird Feeding Tip: Seeds are the best source of high energy food for wild birds. Other foods, like breads, do not contain as much energy
Schools and businesses are encouraged to participate in this special day. They can hold classes and seminars in wild bird feeding, winter survival, and educate the public about backyard birds in general.
Get in on the fun today. Set up a bird feeder and save your wild backyard birds.

Today's Laugher: I often watch the birds fight over a worm. So far, it's Cardinals 3, Blue Jays 1.
History and Origin of Feed the Birds Day:
Feed the Birds Day was created by Bob Matthews of Rochester, NY in 2016. Bob and his wife Debbie, are avid bird watchers. Bob is also the creator of Holiday Insights and The Gardener's Network.
According to Matthews, birds in northern areas of the country need our help most in the late winter months. Use this day to start enjoying the great hobby of bird watching, as you help your backyard birds to survive.
