Please remember to clean and add fresh water daily to birdbaths.
During this hot spell, an extra change of water will help to cool the birds as they drink and bathe, along with all the other visitors to your special watering hole –bees, butterflies, dragonflies… all flying critters that protect our environment need a cool drink.
Hummingbird feeders should be changed every two days. The birds will not drink from a dirty container.
If you have wildlife trails passing through your yard or live on the forest’s edge, think about putting out a bucket of water for the deer and other critters that share our space.
