Simple ways to help our feathered friends during the cold months
As National Bird Feeding Month, February serves as a good reminder to extend some help to our feathery friends during the tough winter season. Feeding birds during the winter is particularly crucial, as natural food sources become scarce. By helping them out, we not only ensure their survival but also create an enjoyable pastime for ourselves and help preserve the beauty they bring to our surroundings. We can help birds this month and beyond by creating a welcoming space for them right in our own yards or front porches.
Make Ace Hardware of Fort Collins your first stop to finding a variety of high-quality bird feeding needs. From bird houses to premium bird feed blends, Ace Hardware of Fort Collins offers a wide range of options to cater to different bird species and preferences. Some great choices we currently carry include:
Attract everything from cardinals, finches, flickers and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, and juncos. This bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds, without catering to those sneaky squirrels. It does so by utilizing a weight-activated perch that closes off under a squirrel’s weight, while your favorite birds can still access the seed just fine.
ACE premium wild bird food is an all-purpose mix, featuring sunflower seed and has the proper variety of ingredients to attract many types of colorful songbirds. Ace Wild Bird Food is also fortified to help wild birds through long winter, breeding and migrating seasons.
Ace black oil sunflower is the best single grain for attracting the widest variety of wild birds to your backyard. The high oil content makes black oil sunflower seeds popular with wild birds. The oil provides birds with the energy they need to live. Black oil sunflower seeds have a soft shell, which makes it suitable for small songbirds. Triple cleaned for purity – so birds get the best of the seed.
Enhance your bird watching experience with accessories like this pretty bead-accented copper swing. This hummingbird perch keeps birds in your yard longer by giving them a place to roost while they wait for an open space at your busy bird feeder. Hang with a hook or cord near your feeders and you’ll soon see the iridescent beauties perched and enjoying the view. The size of this swing accommodates other feeder birds as well.
You don’t have to store your bird bath over the winter. Welcome wild birds to your yard or property year-round with this bird bath de-icer with an aluminum base. Just add this De-icer and it will keep your bird bath ice-free all winter long, even in sub-zero temperatures.
