So many people have trouble feeding their family these days that the idea of spending money to help feed backyard birds is not an option for many.
There are ways to help out our feathered friends and not spend a bunch of money doing it. Be wise when purchasing feeders, and buy the right kind. They are too expensive not to do some research first. Cheaply made feeders will cost you money in the long run as squirrels will readily tear them apart.
Winters can be harsh in many areas of the world and birds are in need of help in finding food, especially on the worst of days.
