Food is the most essential element, providing birds with the energy, stamina and nutrition they need. An ample supply of high-calorie foods such as black oil sunflower, nuts and suet is crucial to a bird's survival.
When they aren’t eating they are also searching for protection from the elements in compact bushes, evergreens and in other natural plant cover. You can help by placing bird houses or roosting pockets in a sheltered area.
