Birds filling their suitcase with all the necessary travel items, fat, energy, vitamins, full bellies!

Autumn bird feeding in your garden is very important. Some people think that bird feeding in the autumn is not a good idea. They mistakenly believe that their feeders will keep the birds from migrating. You are helping them prepare for their long trek. Think of it as filling their suitcase with all the necessary travel items, fat, energy, vitamins, full bellies!birds2

All wild birds whether they are joining the large scale movement of bird migration or facing colder northerly temperatures, are preparing for change.They do this by stocking up on body fat, to be used as energy. They eat more at one sitting than they did all summer and visit feeders more often so they can achieve this end.

Wild birds are compelled to leave whether it be the shortening daylight, cooling of temperatures or the natural diminishing of food resources. Scientists are still not certain what changes make them sense it’s time to leave.

But leave they will regardless of our feeders being full.

A Special Reminder:

It is very important to keep your feeders clean and filled with fresh food during autumn bird feeding, the same as during the summer.
