Fall temperatures in our neighborhood are fairly moderate, but late into November the snow flurries begin to fly.  A brisk change blew in this week as a foreshadow of the winter to come.  It also signaled the need to deploy our bird feeders. 

While there is plenty of natural food still available in the wild, it’s a good time to present the feed stations as an alternate source for our feathered friends.

Giving the birds plenty of time to find the feeders is important in the event an early – and heavy – snowfall covers their natural resources.

For more information about feeding the birds, refer to this page at the Cornell Lab of Orinthology.
