Summer's gentle embrace is upon us. The mornings seem brighter, the days stretch out a little longer, and our gardens come alive with the symphony of bird song. Yet, a question frequently arises during this season: "Should we feed the birds even in the summer?" Let's delve into this.
1. The Misconception of Summer's Bounty
You'd think with the world all green and blooming, birds would be having a feast. But, y'know, that's not always the case. Sure, there are worms and the odd berry here and there. But many birds, especially the ones we so love watching, sometimes struggle. They'd give an arm and a wing for a consistent food source in our gardens.
2. Addressing the Squirrel Conundrum
The advent of summer doesn't just mean more birds; it also heralds the arrival of our furry friends, the squirrels. Their antics, while amusing, can deplete the food meant for birds. Fortunately, we've curated a selection of squirrel proof bird feeders, ensuring that the feed you place is enjoyed solely by our avian companions.
3. Hydration: A Key Summer Concern
Remember last summer's heatwave? The one where we all wished for an extra ice cream cone? Birds felt that too. Many natural puddles dry up, and our winged friends get thirsty. Offering them a little birdie oasis is like giving them their own ice cream (well, sort of).
4. Helping the Little Ones Grow
The chirps of baby birds are the music of summer. And those parent birds? They're the unsung heroes, always on the hunt for a tasty morsel for their young ones. A feeder in your garden is like a 24/7 diner for them.
5. The Mutual Joy of Bird-Watching
Nothing beats the tranquility of watching birds on a quiet morning. With the world rushing by, it's a moment of zen. And the variety! It's like nature's own reality TV show
To Sum It Up...
Feeding birds in summer isn't just an age-old tradition; it's a bond we share with nature. With the world buzzing about the latest trends and news, sometimes, it's these simple acts that ground us. If you're thinking of upping your bird feeding game this summer, be sure to give our bird feeders a gander.
Here's to making memories and cherishing the little moments. Cheers!
