With the first Heat Alert of the season in place in much of the area, please be reminded how important cool, fresh water is for everyone! Check on your elderly neighbours and others who may be affected by this heat.
If you have pets outside, make sure their water is fresh while also providing a cool place for them to stay. If you are offering water for the birds, either in a bath or flat dish, change and clean the container often and if you can place nectar feeders in the shade, this will help too. Sugar water needs to be changed often, especially in these very warm temps...for the good health of the birds. If your nectar has turned cloudy, it is past being 'good'. Seed feeders will be better in the shade too.
