Falling Feathers

If your fine feathered friends begin to look a little tattered, don't be concerned. Most of our feeder birds molt once a year, usually beginning in late summer after all the breeding is finished. Molting is a gradual process of losing feathers and replacing them with strong new ones a few at a time. The feathers normally fall out symmetrically on either side of the body, a few at a time.

Summer Feeding Good

With a little planning it is possible to attract summer birds to your feeding station using a variety of seeds, fruit, nectar and meal worms. Your handouts won't disrupt their natural feeding patterns and you'll be uniquely entertained. Bird sounds are a lovely respite from a cacophony of artificial noises that clog our busy days.
