We’ve been experiencing a mixed bag of weather during December & more importantly, during the holidays! While, in our area at least, it has provided for perfect driving conditions for those who have had to travel to various celebrations, it may not be the best for seeing lots of birds around your feeders! Don’t worry….the birds are around & will return when they need the food that you offer!
Following days with lots of moisture or if your seed has been out for a longer period of time with no action at your feeders, you may want to check to see if the seed is wet or, alternatively, clean the feeder out, wash it and add some fresh seed. We would advise not to fill it so you don’t waste it should birds continue to be absent & weather still damp. However, once the temperatures drop and/or snow returns, you’ll want to have your feeders full & ready!
