Bird Love: Winter Bird Feeding and A Winner!

If you’ve spent any time visiting me, you know I have a deep and abiding love of birds. . .♥ We keep our feeders filled year-round, but it’s especially important in the winter months, when there is snow on the ground and a great way to brighten a dreary winter day!
