25th Annual
It's Fun. It's Easy. It's FREE. It's For the Birds!
Become a citizen scientist and help biologists track bird populations during the winter months. Yes! This four day count, February 18 - 21, 2022 will help to collect data on bird movements and be combined with the Christmas Bird Count and Project Feeder Watch data. The information will help to track bird patterns and discover new questions and insights.
Scientists and bird enthusiasts can learn a lot by knowing where the birds are. Now that winter has gripped the continent, what are our birds doing. Bird populations are dynamic, they are constantly in flux. Scientists want to take a snap shot of North American bird populations and YOU can help.
Everyone’s contribution is important. All ages and skill levels of birders are asked to participate. It doesn’t matter whether you identify, count and report the 5 birds coming to your backyard bird feeder or the 75 species you see during a days outing to a wildlife refuge. Your data will help answer many questions.
 “The Great Backyard Bird Count” is a terrific way for individuals, families, schools, and community groups to contribute to a better understanding of birds. In return, you will learn more about birds in the process. It’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable and rewarding way to spend a little time enjoying nature and counting birds on a winter day.

February Bird Notes:
  • Watch your feeders closely for any new birds showing up. Backyard bird watchers account for most of the rare bird sighting.
  • Ice and the heavy snows can cover up natural foods. Keep the feeders filled.
  • Ice and heavy snows can cover up natural grit sources needed by birds to digest seeds.
  • If you didn’t have Goldfinches before Christmas, you should have now with the heavy snows up north.
  • Open water and well stocked bird feeders can increase the survival of birds during extreme winters by up to 50%.
  • Use a ground feeder with proso millet and safflower, or a general wild bird mix, for our ground feeding birds.
  • Provide suet and peanuts for woodpeckers, Carolina Wrens, Brown Creepers, and other birds of the tree trunk zone.
  • Make plans now to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count, February 18 - 21, 2022

Winter has arrived. Snows and arctic temps have made it challenging for birds. If you haven't already had the cold and snow, it will be coming. Are you ready for winter bird feeding? Here's some

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.
Made in the USA
Great time to buy a new bird feeder as you get ready for spring and summer bird feeding. Maybe add a new type of bird feeder for summer. What kind of bird feeder might you want to add to your backyard? Find out at

Wild Bird Habitat's
