National Bird Feeding Month

Posted on Feb 1, 2018

February 2nd is Groundhog’s Day – that time of year when those of us living in temperate climates turn our attention to a furry brown marmot awaiting its “prediction” as to whether or not winter weather will persist for another six weeks. But did you know that February is also National Wild Bird Feeding Month? Putting up a bird feeder in your backyard can be an entertaining and educational way to pass the time while winter persists, and it will help keep our feathered friends fed until their spring food resources emerge. Want to know what the most common feeder birds are and how to attract your favorites? Check out the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s website. And don’t forget to have your binoculars and your Peterson Field Guide handy! Our motto: Learn it, love it, protect it!
