Weekend Housekeeping: Keep feeders clean & full.

It was a beautiful weekend so, I gave the feeders a good cleaning and filled them full of new feed & treats. It's really important to clean your feeders at least once a month. Just use warm water and maybe a little dish soap but don't use anything containing bleach. 
I'm really looking forward to cooler weather because birds are more active and they rely more on the feeders. If you're new at bird feeding, a great thing to start with is a suet cake and cage. The suet cakes are $1.50-$2.00 and the feeder cages are about $3.00. These are really good for birds during the winter months when food supplies are limited. Suet cakes are made of animal fat and it gives birds the energy they need during the winter months.  So keep your feeders clean and ready for the cooler temperatures.
