What birds can you expect at your bird feeders in winter? Quite a few if you keep your feeders well supplied with quality bird seeds and suet. A great majority of birds that breed in the U.S. migrate south for the winter, especially if they are birds that eat mainly insects. But many birds live in one area all year round, and other birds will come to your feeders just in winter.
