Tips to help wildlife
Feed the birds.
Feeders containing seeds, nuts, suet or nectar provide supplemental nutrition for birds year round, especially during nesting season, migration and inclement weather. Remember to clean and disinfect feeders regularly. Hummingbird nectar can spoil quickly and should be changed more frequently during periods of high temperatures.
