Winter is the time when Nature looks like a fairytale. It might not be as colorful as in fall, but it is undoubtedly majestic.
We all love the snow-covered branches of trees, heavy and sparkling, the icy ponds, and the white clouds on the blue sky. The whole white atmosphere outside, the frosts, the snow, the crystal nights and the fresh, clean air, are reminiscent of warmth, love, and holidays.
We are not the only ones that enjoy nature in winter, and some birds seem to adore it.
Their colorful feathers emphasize the whiteness around them, and photos of winter birds are simply captivating:

Apparently, winter is not the off-season for birds, and you will get numerous chances to enjoy their beauty if you do not find it challenging to go out in the cold weather.
You will also easily spot birds among the leafless trees, in the parks and the nearest forest. Moreover, certain birds in the U.S. can only be found in winter.
Due to the scarcity of food, your home might also be visited by numerous different birds during the winter months, depending on the area, climate, geography, and landscape.
The greatest difficulty wild birds face during the cold months is to find enough food, and ensure they have adequate fat supplies to store on the body and ‘burn’ for energy.
Therefore, make sure you clean off any feeders, platforms, and perches after storms, and leave some food for your guests, such as berries, fruits, and seeds.
And then, just take delight in the view!
