November, month of mornings misty-bright
With golden light:
Month when the many-tinted leaf
Lies thick upon the moss below;
While to and fro
The breezes moan, as if in grief.

–Mortimer Collins (1827–76)

Feeding Birds in Winter

Feeding Garden Birds in Winter
Birds are an essential part of the garden, helping with pest control as they snap up aphids, caterpillars, grubs and other insect pests. But in the winter food can be scarce. Regular feeding will encourage birds to keep coming back to your garden, so they’ll be around during the growing season to help keep pests in check.
