Just a quick note to remind you fellow birders that with the soaking and wind driven rain we received the other day that it is likely the bird seed in the open areas of your bird feeder could be quite wet. My feeders sure had some wet food.
Take a few moments out of your busy day and scoop as much of the wet seed out as you can. Our feathered friends do not prefer wet food and they will let it lie and go to other feeding areas.
After awhile the wet food can even get a little mildewy but again all this can be averted by simply scooping out the wet food. The birds will be back in business and feeding happily!
Also with the weather taking a turn for the colder, it is more important than ever to give the birds some suet. We sell good quality suet here at Skillin's along with suet pellets that can be used in any regular feeder. I use the pellets in my Squirrel Buster feeders and the birds really appreciate that.
If you need more food we have plenty on sale here at Skillin's for 20% off! Great quality food for our feathered friends!
