What, when, where, how to feed birds. Learn from the experts at Project FeederWatch: Bird food, Feeding birds FAQs
Can't birds feed themselves? During summers with a lot of plant and flower growth, they don't need supplemental seed. However, during very cold winters they do need our assistance with food. In periods of high heat and drought, your running water can be a lifeline to thirsty birds. If a summer feels particularly brutal to you and you see birds "panting", they can use supplemental water sources. Plus, you can enjoy watching them bathe!
Can't feed birds yourself? Donate to our "Seed Fund". We maintain the Armchair Birding feeders in the winter when birds need the most from us. Our volunteers diligently stock the feeders so that wintering sparrows and other species can make it through the cold weather.
Join us for our many "Big Sits" at Dead Horse State Park and learn about local species as you relax. Why not let the birds come to you?!
