Part of the preparations for winter often include hanging bird feeders of one sort or another. I recall growing up my mom would always throw the bread crumbs out on the snow for the sparrows who stayed over winter. (crumbs from her fresh homemade bread, of course!). This year I am trying suet in a hanging basket. Thus far I haven’t seen any action at the feeder but it’s early. What have you tried and was it successful?
