As Fall Migration Continues…

Support migrants during their incredible journeys by offering water. You never know who’ll turn up at your bird bath!

The source doesn’t have to be fancy!  It just needs to be clean and filled with fresh water. This is the best opportunity to attract non-seed eaters that are not tempted by your feeders

In conclusion, as always, we can’t stress this enough: All birds need water for drinking and bathing all year round.

See our resource pages  ‘Fall Migration‘ and ‘Water: One of Three Elements That Make Your Backyard a Bird Habitat‘  for more.

Thank you for supporting wild birds and also for continuing to support our efforts here at the store. Together, we are making a difference.

Happy Autumn birding!
