    We keep some birdseed in the house (don't ask me why 'cause I don't know!) and since the snow and ice made it impossible to refill the feeders, we tossed seed out on the path, patio, and porch.

    We've had cardinals, white crowned sparrows, chickadees, red wing blackbirds and cow birds come to feast. We'll be glad to get back to filling feeders rather than having to throw seed out the kitchen door!

    Oh how interesting to see those birds. You get a good variety.
    We also keep birdseed in our house, but I do know why. It is because we make suet balls in the winter.

    We don't have any of the birds you mentioned but here it's the same in bad weather. The birds flock to the garden as soon as food is put out. I always have a supply on hand to help them during the winter.
