During winter, birds must use more energy to survive cold days and longer, colder evenings. This energy comes from birds' body fat reserves, which must be replenished each day. You can help by offering a reliable source of high-fat foods such as suet, Jim's Birdacious®️ Bark Butter®️ or peanuts.

Fundamentals Squirrel-proof🐿️️ Feeder - simple, and very effective design, easy to fill and clean. Birds love it!

Choice Blend - great blend of Cardinal 🐦 favorites (black oil sunflower, safflower) mixed with peanuts 🥜 make it well loved by many birds and full of fat and protein. Great for winter!

Lucuma gourd ornaments - they are beautiful and hand-carved and make wonderful host/hostess gifts 😉 and are from a fair-trade company.

Thanks so much, Sherri!
