My parents always fed the birds. When I was a little girl, my mother used to cut stale bread into small cubes and throw it out on the lawn for the sparrows. I doubt anyone ever bought bird seed back then, except for their caged budgies and canaries. Nowadays, feeding the birds is big business! Many of us have feeders in the gardens to help the birds through the long winter. And some of us even feed year ’round just to encourage the birds to visit more frequently. Birds add life to the garden with their beautiful plumage and cheery songs. And many of them eat bugs, endearing them to gardeners! Add a birdbath and you’ll be rewarded with even more activity. We have a small stone birdbath on the porch and the birds queue up in the lilac waiting their turn.
