Extreme cold is a tough time for birds


The severe cold and heavy snowfall of recent days may cause some to worry about birds finding food and shelter, but local experts say birds will find both, even without the help of bird feeders.

Blaine County Extension agent Mike Schuldt said people don't need to feed the birds when it gets really cold outside unless they have been feeding them already.

Wild animals are able to find their own food, and if a bird has survived to this point, it probably has found a supply of food, Schuldt said. The food might be in protected areas under shrubs or brush where there is less snowpack and ice.
