Winter Survival

Typically, your feeders serve as a supplemental source of food for birds in your yard. In contrast, during periods of cold and severe winter weather, your birds may switch to utilizing them as a critical source of food that enables them to survive from day to day.

Songbirds may use up 75-80% of their fat reserves in one winter night. This is equivalent to 10% of their body weight being shed and replaced every day as they consume, store and utilize their body fat. This is comparable to a 200lb person losing and then gaining back 20lbs of fat every 24 hours!

Fat is the most concentrated energy source that a bird can consume and stored body fat is the primary energy supply that fuels a bird between meals and through these long winter nights Their daily challenge is to find enough food to not only make it through each day, but to also replace their fat reserves for the coming night -- all in the course of limited daylight hours.

High fat foods are a critical necessity that you can provide your birds to help them survive the long winter nights. High fat suet and Bark Butter are excellent foods to serve.

And one of the best food to offer is WBU’s Winter SuperBlend, which has been specifically formulated to provide birds’ with the much needed fat and energy they need to survive whatever winter throws at them.  For more information, visit our Winter Survival page.
