Watch for Migrating Birds This MonthTownsend's Warbler

More than 300 bird species found in North America during the summer make their way to Central and South America or the Caribbean, some covering distances of nearly 7,000 miles. Parks, backyards and nature refuges across the country will host these winged visitors as the birds make their way to their winter homes.

Migration is a fascinating part of bird behavior. Besides the amount of daylight, it appears that age, sex, weather and the availability of food, water and shelter are the major factors in migratory behavior.

While migration is still not completely understood, it appears that some birds orient themselves by the stars on clear nights while others seem to have a built-in magnetic compass. Some birds travel over large bodies of water, and birds commonly lose one-fourth to one-half of their body weight during such over-water migration.

In order to survive their grueling trip, birds accumulate fat prior to migration. This physiological change helps the birds maintain their energy reserves.

Not only can we enjoy migrating birds as they pass through our area, but we can also play a role in their survival by providing food, water, habitat and/or shelter to help them conserve and replenish their energy supply during their journey. Foods that are high in fat, such as suet, Bark Butter and a seed blend with lots of sunflower seeds, help birds refuel their energy supply.

It’s Time to Enjoy More Hummingbirds

Watch your hummingbird feeders this month and you’ll witness one of the greater spectacles in the hobby of backyard bird feeding. Adult hummingbirds are now joined by a horde of newly fledged juveniles in a migratory eating binge that only occurs at this time of year.

 

Make the most of this opportunity with our Wild Birds Unlimited Hummingbird Feeders. Featuring ports that are above the nectar reservoir, our specially-designed, tray-style hummingbird feeders are the best on the market for several reasons:

 

  • No leaking.
  • Because the feeders do not leak, there are fewer bothersome yellow-jackets.
  • No ants (built-in ant moat).
  • Best visibility – you can see all the birds feeding at one time.
  • Birds can feed while hovering or perched.
  • The perches encourage birds to rest, giving you a longer viewing time.

 

For the best view of your hummingbird feeders, consider the following:

 

  • Hang your hummingbird feeder from an Advanced Pole System® (APS) Decorative Branch Perch that is mounted to a new or existing bird feeding station.
  • Place your feeders in a flower garden, near a window or other place in your yard using the lightweight Hummingbird Crook Pole.
  • For the closest view, use the WBU Decorative Window Hummingbird Feeder.
