Fall Migration

The vast majority of our backyard birds stay here for the winter, but did you know there are a number of birds that come here from the north just for the winter?  Below is a list of the more common backyard birds that come here for the winter, what they prefer to eat and the style of feeder that will most likely attract them.
Most of these birds will return north throughout March and April.
