In March, birds' natural food supply is at its lowest point of the year. Insect populations are still low, and there are few remaining edible wild fruits, berries and seeds.
High-energy foods, like our No-Mess Blend contain sunflower seeds and nuts without the shell that are loaded with fat and protein. They're wonderful substitutes for the insects many birds would eat if they could find them. Suet and Seed Cylinders also provide the nutrition required to keep birds healthy.
And if the ground ever thaws you can set up a wonderful Advanced Pole System to replace any feeding stations that were ruined in the December ice storm.
