Perfect Photos In The Winter
These ʀᴏʙɪɴs are so admiring if this mini snowman – it’s almost as though they built it themselves. The small birds are ꜰᴀsᴄɪɴᴀᴛᴇᴅ by the tiny snowman as they perch nearby – or even on top of him. A beautiful photo. The cheery looking figure, who has a baby carrot for a nose and lopsided smile, almost looks as though he is saying hello to them all. Birds were finding food in the snow.
In fact, the birds came to check out their new friend after he was built by a small boy playing in the snow. The perfect Christmas card picture was taken by Jørn Allen Pedersen, 56, outside his cabin in Hafjell, Nᴏʀᴡᴀʏ.
Jørn said: “The mini snowman was built by my grandchild, and we always have plenty of bird surrounding our cabin. We always put food out food for the birds and they just keep coming back for more. I was looking out of the window to see what the weather was like and I saw the birds circling the snowman.”
Attracting beautiful birds in the winter is not too difficult for those who are connoisseurs of birds. Food is one of the things that attracts birds or maybe you planted tall trees for bird habitat or attracted them with sunflowers, berry shrubs, and native flowers. Some migratory birds have left for warmer climes by now, but many more northern species come to overwinter here, joining the woodpeckers, cardinals, and goldfinches that stay year-round.

Why Feed Birds?
Some people think that feeding birds helps them sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ the winter. The truth is that most birds are capable of finding food and enduring cold weather without our help. What’s more important is the bird habitat we grow in our yards and gardens, like planting evergreens for nesting. Feeders may help them buck extreme cold spells, but in most cases, all of the birds that cannot handle Illinois winters have flown south by now. The benefit of hanging feeders is more for us, not the birds: they give us a way to create relationships with local ᴡɪʟᴅʟɪғᴇ. Even though birds can find food elsewhere, they will still come to enjoy our offerings. And those visits are precious moments when we can observe and learn about these wonders of the sky.
