Helping wild birds in winter – Do you need to help wild birds in winter? Or can they help themselves
Common sense tells us that of course, birds have survived for centuries without any human help during cold weather. In times past, people had a hard enough time surviving in the wilderness in sub-zero temperatures, let alone worry about wild birds and other animals.
But for those of us who love the wild things in the garden – the birds, squirrels, bats, bees, insects, possums and all living creatures – the freezing temperatures, snow, and ice have us worried about our wild friends. Helping wild birds in winter just makes sense.
