Feed the birds

We love feeding the birds at home or at our cottage up north. Up north, we have the chance to see many more kinds of birds with it being right on the edge of the woods. This past weekend, we went to two visitors centers ~ one for Holland's Natuur Monumenten and the other for Staats Bosbeheer (forest rangers). I fell in love with the bird feeding tables outside each center. I did something similar a number of years ago with a rusted old table. In the end, some blackbirds picked all the moss off it and used it as nesting material.
It is so important for us to feed the birds especially in the cold, winter months. It also encourages them to come into the garden as well as having the joy of watching such fun creatures.
