My sweetheart is concerned about the welfare of the birds now the garden is covered in snow. She finished up the packet of bird food she puts out for them this morning and is now resorting to bread. I'm not a bird expert, and neither is she, but I vaugely remember reading somewhere that bread isn't very good for birds in cold weather, but to give them lard instead. Looking through the pantry, I see we have things such as lentils and dried fruit. Will they eat this sort of thing?
