Caring for Winter Birds
Prevent birds from crashing
into your windows.
If you have a problem with birds crashing into your windows, try placing sun
ornaments and other objects in the window to let them know they can't fly through.
Avoid hanging plants in front of the window - this is just inviting trouble.
If a bird has a mishap, place him in a well-ventilated box in a warm area to
recover. He may only be stunned. Never handle birds or any other wild animal
with your bare hands.
Water for Winter Birds
Birds need just as much water in winter as they do the rest of the year. In
warm climates, keep clean, fresh water in your birdbaths year round. In cold
climates, break out any thin sheets of ice that form on the surface of the
water in your bird bath as often as possible.
