Birds spend a lot of time foraging for natural sources of food and you can provide that in your garden, beyond just a bird feeder (which is always a good idea). Ella Maxwell, from Hoerr Nursery, says the Cone Flower is an excellent source of food in the winter and reminds you to not cut them down. Another food source is berries, which can be found on a Crab Apple tree. There are a number of feeders and seeds to utilize for birds but make sure you provide something for the squirrels to eat as well.
