Spring is finally here. The buds are forming on the trees. Grass is becoming greener with the rainy weather. Tulips, crocuses and daffodils are opening their flowers to the warmer days. Even though winter seems far behind us, it is still important to fee the birds.
Many birds rely on feeders to help them withstand the drastic weather changes in the spring. With spring snowstorms, occasional cold weather, and rainy days, birds often are not able to locate natural food sources which may not be available yet. The food we provide give birds the additional nourishment and energy they need for mating and nesting.
Have your birdfeeders available in early spring before birds arrive home. They will need the nourishment after a long migration. And don't forget fresh water in the birdbath. After such a long flight, a bath might feel good.
