Keep your birds watered

I want to remind readers to keep your bird feeders and your birdbaths filled.

It's easy to go out and replenish the seed and suet in the feeders. It isn't quite so easy keeping the birdbaths filled in winter, because the temperature drops most nights below freezing. This week, we've had days when the water didn't thaw.

Look for an inexpensive heater for your birdbath. There are several on the market. Check online and on Ebay, too.

Birdbath heaters, along with your daily monitoring of the water level, will assure the birds of having a water supply. In winter, that's as big a problem as the food supply.--RDH
