Berries and Birds
Colorful fruits dotting bare twigs offer beautiful backdrops for winter wildlife.
Hunker down near a window with your camera to capture flurry-filled photos of birds at your feeders on a blustery day.
After each big snowstorm, check on your landscape. Secure loose branches, cut back damaged twigs and toss on extra mulch where it’s needed.
Fill your feeders daily, preferably in the late afternoon, to give birds a boost before they roost for the night.
