Nothing brightens a gray winter day faster than watching a flock of colorful birds gobble seeds at a bird feeder. Providing a feast for your feathered friends is as easy as scattering birdseed on the ground around your house. If you want something a little fancier, you can buy a feeder or make one yourself (see Page 11). Place the feeder near a window, preferably close to bushes or trees so birds have a place to escape to if the neighborhood cat comes prowling. Once the table is set, grab a pair of binoculars and sit where you can watch the feathered feeding frenzy.
