Many of you don’t get out as much as in the warmer weather, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the birds. If you don’t want to go out to them, have them come to you. Just bribe them with food!

February is National Bird-Feeding Month. Has been since 1994, [ and that is news to me too]  Here is a link to more information from the National Bird-Feeding Society: www.birdfeeding.org/nbfm.html

February 18-21 is also when the Great Backyard Bird Count takes place. It is led by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, National Audubon Society, and Bird Studies Canada, with sponsorship from Wild Birds Unlimited. You can find more details here: www.birdsource.org/gbbc/
