Top Tips for Birds in Spring

From Birds and Blooms Magazine - Feb/Mar

• Fill feeders daily. Natural food is in shortest supply in early spring, and migration is in full swing.

• Watch for the first birds of spring, including red-winged blackbirds, American robins, phoebes, flickers and tree swallows.

• Put up sugar-water feeders for the first arrivals of hummingbirds, orioles and grosbeaks.

• Water is very popular in spring as migrants pass through. It's a great way to attract new visitors.

• Attract bluebirds with live mealworms. You can buy these online or at pet stores. You can also buy dried mealworms by the container.

• Include suet for quick energy on cold spring mornings.

• Look for waves of warblers, all dressed up in their brilliant breeding plumages.

• Put up new birdhouse and clean those that have been out all winter.
