If the calls of the Sandhill Cranes, or the sound of flocks of Snow Geese overhead, send a tingle down your back and gives you goosebumps - then you have the onset of spring bird migration fever. Once you've witnessed the Sandhill Crane migration and heard those calls it will lure you back again and again every spring.
March News Notes:
  • March, we are at the beginning stages of spring migration.
  • Over 500,000 Sandhill Cranes will spend six weeks on the Platte River.
  • March snowstorms can cause problems for our birds.
  • Suet will be in big demand for the remainder of winter, and even more so from March to August during the nesting season.
  • Goldfinches will be flocking to thistle feeders & males will show their breeding plumage.
  • If you choose to plant for wildlife this spring begin planning now. Carroll Henderson’s book “Landscaping for Wildlife” is a great resource and available at Wild Bird Habitat Store.
  • We’ve seen a lot of snow, but not many northern winter birds.
  • Time to clean out nest boxes, make repairs to them, or add a new bird house
  •  After a quiet winter it’s time for the singing to begin.
Over 500,000+ Sandhill Cranes converge every spring on a 70 mile stretch of the Platte River in Central Nebraska. The largest wildlife migration in North America and unmatched anywhere on earth.

Watch flocks of Sandhill Cranes return to the Platte River near Audubon Rowe Sanctuary at sunset to roost for the night. Then again watch at sunrise as tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes leave the river to feed in the surrounding fields.

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.
