February is a good time to celebrate backyard birds as they are usually quite active in the late winter months and often hungry and thirsty A celebration of Backyard Birding takes place over the long President's Day Holiday weekend - The Great Backyard Bird Count.
February is also National Bird Feeding Month. Here is a guide on Backyard Bird Feeding from the Fish and Wildlife Service. It all boils down to food, water and shelter - even custom built homes like this woodpecker nest box. While your at it - feed the squirrels too!
These three videos demonstrate - Shelter -- Water and Food - what we all need to flourish!
