PROVO -- Utah wildlife officials are encouraging residents to help the state's wild birds through the winter by putting out bird food and bird feeders.
The Daily Herald of Provo reports long nights, sub-zero temperatures and winter storms severely limit the food supply.
Division of Wildlife Resources official Ron Stewart says birds need to eat regularly to maintain body heat. He says most move between food sources along a regular daily route.
