Winter Birding Tips

 

  • Rake around the base of your bird feeders, cleaning up the seed debris will prevent disease and pests.
  • Nesting boxes should be cleaned. Birds may use them over the winter as roosts and some birds, especially Bluebirds, will look for potential spring nesting sites before leaving for the winter.
  • Clean and sanitize all your feeders using a 10% bleach mixture:
    • Mix 1 part bleach to 9 parts water
    • Soak your feeders in this mixture
    • Rinse well
    • Dry thoroughly before re-filling with seed
  • Any feeder that will be put away for the winter, like finch feeders, should be cleaned before going into storage.
  • Move your feeders closer to your house for easier access. If you don’t have to shovel your way out to them, you’re more likely to fill them.
  • Be sure to periodically check the feeder ports for ice build-up.
  • Plastic domes can be added to feeders to keep snow off and the seed dry.
  • Put out suet feeders to provide a high-energy food source and attract plenty of birds.
  • Bird baths should be stored or heated for the winter. Making sure your birds will always have access to water is also very important. Bird bath heaters are available to purchase at Owenhouse.
    • Use the 10% bleach sanitizing solution to clean bird baths before storing them.
  • Extend the life of concrete bird baths, which do not handle freeze-thaw cycles well, by storing them for the winter.
  • Stock up on your bird’s favorites now through October 31st during the Fall Bird Seed & Suet Sale at Owenhouse!
