Winter bird feeders allow students the opportunity to view the many arrivals to their set out feeding stations. The practice of feeding winter birds is a popular pastime, and for many classrooms such projects are an important educational tool as a daily record and identification can be made of the many bird species which come and go throughout the winter months.
For a limited amount of work, always ensuring that there is adequate feed in the feeder, you and your students will receive all winter long, the attention, company and pleasure of seeing numerous birds which quickly adopt your winter-feeding station as their lifeline to help survive winter's harshest extremes.
