Here in Northeast Ohio, we can expect to start seeing our Spring visitors anywhere between late March to mid-April, depending on what kind of winter weather we had. So make sure you have all of your Hummingbird and Oriole feeders cleaned and ready for them so they don’t pass up your yard for your next-door neighbors!
Here are some tips as we prepare for Spring: By Sommer's Wild Bird Food
- Clean your feeders! As it warms up outside, feeders should be thoroughly cleaned and any repairs should be made to your feeder.
- Add some extra feeders! As the birds arrive back to your yard, more birds will be jostling for space at the feeders.
- Additional feeders will help more birds access the food. Try different feeder styles such as; open platforms, large hoppers, multi-perch tubes, ect. This will minimize the competition for feeding space.
- Provide a variety of foods! Different birds prefer different seeds. Sunflower seeds, mixed bird seed, peanut butter, suet, and mealworms should be available to your feathered friends.
- Minimize pesticides. Insects are a key food source for birds and provide protein that is essential for nesting birds and hungry chicks! The more birds in your backyard, the more insects they will eat. (Natural pest control)
- Provide water. Fresh water is also essential for birds. Clean and disinfect bird baths.
