At this time of year birds need extra calcium which we can help provide
them with by putting out eggshells.  I microwave the shells for a minute
(depending on how many- a minute for 5 works well) and put them on the
ground near the feeder after crushing them into pieces.  I've put out about
a dozen so far and they don't last long.  Even the males take them.
