How You Can Help Your Birds After Hurricane Michael

As one of our family of customers and friends, we hope this email finds you safe and well.

The recent hurricane has done damage to our neighborhoods and our community. While we all start to recover from the aftermath of Michael, please consider taking a few steps to help our birds weather the loss of their habitats, too.

The storm’s high winds and floodwaters have damaged numerous habitats and many of the natural food sources that are typically available for birds at this time of natural harvest. The storm also decimated countless trees and shrubs that birds use for food and shelter.

You can help your birds during this challenging time by providing them with much needed food, fresh water and shelter.

Fill your feeders with a variety of high-energy foods such as a high-quality seed blend, suet nuggets, mealworms and jelly.

Birds need a clean source of water for drinking and bathing as storm waters can leave polluted pools as they recede. Provide birds and other wildlife access to fresh water with a birdbath.

Also, while cleaning up the yard, consider creating a brush pile for your birds to use as shelter from weather and predators.

As we all work to recover, having the birds return to our backyards can bring us renewal and peace.
