Freezin’s the Reason For Feedin’

Cardinal and Goldfinches at Feeder

Just a few days ago, birds were seen only occasionally at the feeders. The last couple of nights, however, the temperature dropped below freezing, and now the feeders are flocked by our feathered friends. Christmas morning the low was 21 degrees Fahrenheit, and I suspect the feeders will continue be a popular place for the birds to find easy calories to fuel their metabolic furnaces to try and stay warm over the next several days.
