Take 5: Return of the Feeder Frenzy

We are so excited to finally be able to put bird feeders back out, now that the threat of the mysterious avian disease seems to have subsided. Thank you to everyone who heeded the call—taking down feeders was an important precaution during a time of uncertainty and we are grateful to everyone who played it safe with us.

To celebrate this happy news, here are five photos of birds enjoying various types of feeders from our annual Picture This: Your Great Outdoors photo contest. You can learn more about which birds prefer different kinds of food and feeders on our website, and learn some important steps that you can take to protect our beloved birds, like regular feeder cleaning and keeping your cats indoors.
