Today is National Feed the Birds Day!
There are many surprising benefits to feeding birds aside from the sheer beauty of inviting them to your yard and the enjoyment of their colors and songs…insect control, flower pollination, weed management, and a deeper connection with nature!
The Minnesota DNR has a great page where you can learn more about the birds of Minnesota
as well as a lovely interactive illustration that allows you to hear the songs of some of our common backyard bird friends!
Sargent’s has a wide variety of bird feeders, suet, birdseed, bluebird houses, heated birdbaths, and specialized Oriole & Hummingbird feeders!
