It’s not too late to start putting out bird food and to provide water when temperatures are below zero. We have some good resident populations of sparrows in the Woodlands area, undoubtedly helped by our efforts. Out and about we could see winter visitors. Flocks of wintering thrushes (red wings and field fares) move around together in search of berries and other food. Look for them in trees and on parks and meadows. And we might be lucky enough to see waxwings as they move inland.
