Conifers such as white spruce and cedar pro­vide very good win­ter cover. Be­cause it may take a while for your shrubs and trees to get big enough, a quick solution is to col­lect your neigh­bours’ old Christmas trees.

You may have peo­ple give you some odd looks as you

drag their curb­side post-hol­i­day tree down the street to your home, but these left­overs pro­vide great habi­tat for win­ter­ing birds.

Col­lect dense, tin­sel-free trees, three is a good amount, and then lean them against each other in an up­right po­si­tion.

Most species of conifers will keep their nee­dles for a long time if kept out­side and this makes them nice to look at as well as bird-friendly.
