Question From: Whitmore Lake, Michigan, United States
Q: Hi! I have read that some people stop feeding birds in the spring. I have always figured that the nesting mothers need all the help they can get; and of course the plants have not set seed yet, so food sources are diminished. I would think not all birds eat insects. What do you think?
Female and male seed eaters eat insects in spring, which they feed to their chicks. Birds are having issues this spring due to the unseasonably cold weather. I would continue feeding the birds for the next month at least. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
