To save the birds means to save the farmer's crops. Millions of dollars are lost to agriculture every year through harmful insects. We need the birds to prevent their increase. Birds also destroy seeds of weeds, act as scavengers, and in winter eat the eggs and grubs of insects. In some instances state ornithologists have requested that persons who are kindly disposed towards birds place food in their usual haunts. With their regular supply cut off by the fall of snow, the birds are in great danger of extermination by starvation. A small supply of grain, or even the sweepings from haymows, will do much to relieve the distress of birds during the snowy season. Save your crumbs for them
