Duncraft Debunks The Five Most Common Bird Feeding Myths

 (PRWEB)

Myth: If people feed the birds, the birds will become dependent on bird feeders and will forget how to find food on their own. This myth is very similar to anotherthat people shouldnt feed birds in summer because theres enough natural food and birds have to learn not to become dependent on bird feeders.

Fact: Birds only get about 25% of their food from feeders. If birds cant find food at a bird feeder, they will continue to find natural food sources in the wild such as insects, weed seeds, buds, sap, spiders, berries and pine nuts. But if a bird feeder goes empty during a very harsh winter, it probably will be a hardship for the birds.

The birds havent forgotten how to find food, it just may be very scarce at certain times of the year. The food they find at a bird feeder will be a welcome supplement. If people do feed birds, its best to keep feeding during the winter. As for not feeding in summer, birds probably dont need bird feeders in summer, but how can bird lovers observe all their beautiful colors and behaviors when the birds are foraging in the woods and fields instead of in backyards?

Myth: Birds feet will stick to metal bird feeder perches in the winter. (more…)

Droughts Kill: Perky-Pet


Lititz, PA (PRWEB) August 08, 2012

As the drought across the U.S. continues to put a strain on parched landscapes and fields, it is also having a major effect on wildlife, mostly birds. Just the other week USDA Secretary, Tom Vilsack, declared over 55% of the nations land was in poor to very poor condition. Sadly, we cant do much about making it rain. However, we can be responsible to those birds who are desperately seeking a source of water by taking the hobby of bird feeding seriously.
