Why Feed Backyard Birds?

When I was a toddler, I would watch my mother throw bread crumbs onto the snow of our Pennsylvania yard for the birds. She felt that the birds needed her help weathering cold winter days. It is still a fond memory of mine, some fifty years later. I became fascinated with those birds as I watched them enjoy Mom's treat.
