Some countries have a beautiful tradition of encouraging kindness to birds during the holidays. One such belief is that if you spread birdseed outside your doorstep on Christmas morning, you will have good luck in the coming year. Listen as John and Brian explore different traditions from around the world that showcase our backyard friends.
Feeding the birds isn't just about insect control, flower pollination or weed control. The simple act of feeding the birds expands far past the environmental benefits. Our customers share the most wonderful stories with us and we'd like to share them with you this holiday season! Join hosts John and Brian as they share the heartfelt stories of our customers. If you have a story you'd like to share, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
