We feed the birds all winter and summer.
In the winter it is lovely to see the blue jays and cardinals against the white snow. We feed a general mix for the jays and cardinals and we use a suet feed for the woodpeckers.
In the summer we switch to Niger seed for the goldfinches , sparrows, wrens and my favourite rose-breasted grosbeak.
I managed to get a photo of the grosbeak thru my dining room window . They are very skittish and hard to photograph. The quality of the picture is not good as I was 10 feet away using my zoom. Still I had to show how pretty this bird is.
