Is watering plants and feeding animals a form of sadaqah?

Q: Is watering plants a form of sadaqah? 

Is feeding wild birds also a form of sadaqah? (Wild birds that come to our garden)

A: If it is a tree from which people and animals will derive benefit, insha Allah he will be rewarded.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
