Expert Tips, How to Attract Birds this Winter

Expert Tips, How to Attract Birds this Winter Tip 1 – Add water and make a splash! Adding a bird bath will significantly increase the amount of birds in your yard. Throughout the year birds get a significant amount of water from their food, such as insects and berries. When supplies dwindle, birds will seek out additional sources. Migrating birds seek out these much needed watery rest stops. Additionally, keeping a bird bath or fountain throughout the winter will actually help birds stay warmer. Birds use the water to clean their feathers which promotes natural oils and helps birds stay more insulated. Tip 2 – Provide plenty of the RIGHT seed.  Black-oil sunflower seed is a major stable for birds in the winter months. Striped sunflower seed is still fine but the Black-oil seed has a thinner shell and a much larger kernel, making it a win-win for the birds

Why Seed Your Lawn in the Fall Many of our Sneade’s Ace Home Center customers frequently ask, when is the best time to plant grass seed? Often the answer is the Fall, but why is the Fall the best time to start a new lawn or over seed an existing lawn? The experts in our lawn and garden departments lend their advice as to why to choose the Fall for best results. Expert Tip #1 – Let us start with the almighty Maryland humidity and heat during the summer months.

As I look out my windows and see “Lots of Gold–Gold Finches” on a nearby feeder.  Many people call what I’m looking at “wild canaries.” The male’s bright yellow body and long warbling song fit the name well.  Check out your favorite field guide, and you’ll soon discover that these common familiar birds are formally called American Gold Finches. When they have a place to perch and fresh seed, gold finches will put on quite a show. Gold Finches are recognized by their black wings and tail and black cap.  Females have a greenish and a yellow front and no cap. In early fall, gold finches molt.  That is , they replace their worn, tattered feathers with a set of fresh, new feathers. The appearance of these beautiful creatures after molting changes drastically at this time.  The brilliant yellow body feathers are replaced by dull brownish plumes and the stricking
