  • You can find many species of birds in Calhoun County, Alabama like this yellow finch, also known as the American goldfinch. In 1994, Congressman John Porter established February as National Bird Feeding Month. The month encourages people to provide food, water, and shelter to wild birds in areas with cold temperatures and limited natural resources like plants and berries. Participating in National Bird Feeding month will help populations survive winter and provide you some entertainment in your yard. The best foods include sunflower seeds, thistle, nuts, suet, and millet. ⁠ Photo credit Lenell Gilmore - Anniston, AL⁠ #NationalBirdFeedingMonth #visitcalhouncountyAL #calhouncountyAL #iheartcalhouncoAL #anaturalattraction
