Frozen poultry

The RSB says that many birdies die over winter but here's the thing: in my many years of observing birds, I have never come across a frozen-solid wild bird rigor mortis; it is a great mystery WHERE they go to die. However please do splurge on bird food, if you can- it is not that expensive and it does help our feathered friends stay alive during these cold months. I spend around £5-£7 per month on suet balls at this time of year. That is equivalent to a bottle of wine which I would rather do without if it can help my mates- who delight is using expletives at me when their feeder is empty.
