St. Louis, MO(KTVI)--Naturalists at the World Bird Sanctuary urged residents to make sure birds have enough feed for the winter.
Even though most bird species have gone south for the winter, some of our winged neighbors are staying put in the Midwest. Birds already have a quicker metabolism than mammals and need food high in calories and fat. Surviving cold temperatures makes this diet lifesaving for birds.
Walt Crawford of the World Bird Sanctuary recommends keeping your bird feeder stocked with oil sunflower seeds, suet and peanuts.
