A special thanks goes out to Dan for continuing to share some amazing photographs.

While we're thankful for friends and loved ones this time of the year, it's important to not forget about our flying friends. Before the really cold weather arrives, setting up a feeding station for birds (and other outdoor pals) can not only attract flocks to your property, but can create a go-to destination for them in the coming months.

As the weather gets colder, birds are required to eat more to stay warm and fit. This is especially the case as food, like berries and insects become harder to find. Once snow falls more regularly and the ground becomes frozen, it's even harder for birds to feed.

Even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, keep the birds in mind. Share a little food with them and they may grace you with their presence for a long time to come.
