Family Fun Day – Looking after birds in the winter.

Birds need drinking water to maintain a healthy metabolism to stay warm and hydrated.

They need it for bathing to keep their feathers in top insulating condition and keep them waterproof.

So put out a bowl of water near your bird feeder today and see how they react. If you are able add a heater to the water source to keep it from freezing so they can enjoy it even when really cold.
