We have a number of resident birds that stay in our area year round.  Watching their activities is a pleasant way to spend a cold, snowy day.  Putting up a feeder is one way to attract them to your backyard.   Another way to lure them is to plant a variety of native plants that provide the food and cover they need not only in the winter, but through all seasons.  Where to start?  Take a look at this publication for guidance:
