Remember to feed the birds

Redwing (Turdus iliacus)

Christmas is closing in. Outside the cold winter makes the life of birds a struggle which should remind us to feed them. I have mostly redwings visiting my garden which is covered in snow. They feast on fruits which I give them if the temperature and snow makes it possible for them to reach for them. The redwing on this photo was feeding it´s young last summer. Now it´s our time to feed him during the winter months. Don´t forget the small unbelievable tough creatures in your garden when you sit down to eat your steak.
