Do you put out gravel or sand?

Recommended Posts

There's plenty of natural sand and gravel in the vicinity of my feeders. I suppose if your yard was completely built-up and polished, providing a small dish of sand may be somewhat benificial. Same goes for nesting materials like wool or cotton.

I'm guessing you are in an area where the ground is covered in snow? Might be of some help in that case. Kind of a non-issue here in Southern California. B)

they use sand here in the worst winter on the highways to help with icy roads. so the shoulders of the roads have lots of sand on them and see lots of birds feeding on the roadways
