Temperatures have cooled....Birds will be searching for reliable food sources before much colder temperatures arrive!
Some folks stop feeding certain seeds over the summer months or continue to feed all year round. No matter what you choose, now is the perfect time to get your feeders cleaned & filled with favourite seeds for fall & winter feeding. While you may find that your bird feeders aren't that busy at the moment, never fear, the birds will be seeking food sources now, then return when food in the wild is depleted. Others will take longer to find your feeders or will find them soon & hang around! Many birds tend to come & go....you may have a pair of Cardinals visiting your feeders for a few days, then they may not be seen for a while. Don't give up...the birds will return to your garden when they find it necessary knowing that you have fresh food to offer!!
