It is Thursday, January 10th….and it looks, feels like January! We have received some snow with more possible as the squall line coming off Lake Huron is heading our way. Temperatures are below 0 celcius with wind chills making it seem cooler. Nighttime temperatures will also be much cooler than what we have experienced so far this winter.
With this snow & colder weather, reminder to clear the snow from the seed ports in your feeders; fill your feeders with fresh seed (we experienced some damp weather prior to the cold…if your seed became wet, it could now be frozen); pack or clear the snow below your feeders for those birds who feed from the ground and add fresh water to heated bird baths! It is important to give ‘your’ birds a hand so that they don’t use all of their energy searching for food or water sources.
