Fall Bird Feeding
Wanted:  Bed & Breakfast – family seeks winter lodgings, with regular meals; all-day buffet preferred. Central heating not required, but water a decided plus.  Applications now being taken in your back yard.

People who don’t start feeding birds until severe weather arrives may be missing out. Fall is an important season to feed birds, even though natural foods are plentiful and the birds like the Tufted Titmouse pictured here may not spend much time at your feeder yet. They are out in the fields and woods, feasting on seeds and berries and well-fed insects. The birds that do visit feeders in autumn are scouting. They need to be ready when cold weather hits. So now is the time to gear up your feeding regimen and be sure that your yard is on their feeding inventory.

Visit the Nature Store for all your migration needs. Here you will find numerous feeders to choose from, a large variety of seed, books and more! Knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help you select the right seed and the correct feeder for your specific bird feeding and bird watching needs.

The Nature Store is open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
