seasonal focus:
bird feeding

Do you have a bird feeder? Watching birds visit feeders connects people with nature. This is probably the largest benefit of bird feeders. But, it is also true that bird feeders can assist some birds especially on our shortest and stormiest winter days. Bird feeding is enjoyed by over 50 million people in the US. Are you one of them?

Thinking about getting started with bird feeding? Or are you an experienced feeder watcher? During the winter, Saw Mill River Audubon volunteers are at the Croton Point Nature Center every Saturday and Sunday, 9:00-11:00am, watching the feeders there from inside the nature center and collecting data for Project FeederWatch. Drop by any weekend up until Sunday April 8 to learn more about birds that visit local bird feeders.
