Don’t Forget Your Furry Friends

Now is the time for being diligent with filling the feeders. Birds that don’t migrate to warmer climates will need a food source in order to survive the upcoming months. It’s best to hang feeders at least 4’ above the ground, higher is actually better. Hanging a feeder too low will encourage four legged animals to forage, leaving empty feeders overnight. Birds will also need access to fresh water. Placing a special water heater in the bird bath will prevent freezing.
