Host Richard Hentschel talks about feeding birds this winter, covering a general discussion of bird feeders and the kinds of bird seed used in those feeders. Besides the birds, other wildlife will be there to eat what ends up on the ground. Rabbits, Squirrels, are common as are Voles. Ground feeding birds will also be attracted to the seed thrown out by the birds at the feeder. Once you start to feed the birds, keep at it all winter into late spring.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
