It's spring bird migration and a miracle of nature that a bird weighing less than an ounce can travel thousands of miles with pinpoint accuracy to their destination. No matter if you bird watch in your backyard, city park, nature center or wildlife refuge, here are some tips for GETTING STARTED WATCHING BIRDS
April's Bird Notes:
  •  April is shore bird migration and the beginning of the songbird migration.
  • Many of our winter visitors will be gone by months end.
  • Bluebirds will begin nesting in earnest.
  •  Male Goldfinches will be showing their breeding plumage.
  • Time to prepare for Orioles and Hummingbirds.
  • Make sure to keep a field guide nearby. New birds will be arriving for the summer and many others passing through.
  • Wildlife plantings now will provide future food and homes for our birds.
  • Take advantage of some exciting bird watching during migration at a local wildlife sanctuary.
  •  Make a point to take a child on a bird walk during spring bird migration.

Friendly Bird Feeders
Although the durability and natural look of cedar bird feeders continue to be preferred, the new line of feeders made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic is gaining in popularity. Many of these bird feeders have a lifetime warranty against fading, pealing, cracking, and chipping. They clean up like brand new, even after years of use. And speak of easy cleaning, many of the cedar and recycled plastic feeders we stock have removable perforated steel bottoms. This also allows moisture to pass through and the seed to remain dry.
