It's a Great Time to Feed the Birds
Bird feeding isn't just a winter hobby. By continuing to feed your birds in spring and summer, you have the greatest opportunity to attract the widest variety of birds to your yard and feeders. Access to abundant and healthy food is important to birds...regardless of the season. Birds with access to backyard feeders benefit greatly from their ability to spend less time foraging for food and more time engaging in activities that enhance their health and safety. You also get to enjoy the birds in their breeding plumage and watch the young birds as they come to the feeder. If you don't already have a fresh water supply for your birds now is a good time to consider adding it. Water is critical for birds health, especially on hot summer days.
Thu. Jul. 12th (7:00pm) - NOCTURNAL BIRDS: Back by popular demand, Lyndon Penner will be sharing his passion for birds. With the exception of owls, we almost never think about birds as being creatures that are active at night! Around the world, there are actually quite a few nocturnal birds that have specially adapted and evolved to make their living in the dark! A great many sea-going birds are nocturnal, as is New Zealand's iconic kiwi bird. Nightjars and whippoorwills are night creatures, and maybe you've even spotted a night heron going about his business at dusk. Join us for a curious and engaging look at some of the world's more unusual birds. A FREE event at Wild Birds Unlimited.
Sun. July 22nd (6:30 - 8pm) - The Amazing World Of Falconry: The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird on earth.
