WBU Heated Bird Bath
As the seasons change, there are several ways you can prepare your yard to help your visiting birds during the colder months of the year.
Take Stock of Feeders
During winter, birds need high calorie foods to keep their little bodies warm, especially during cold nights. Now is the perfect time to clean and repair your feeders and replace any that cannot be fixed.
Clean your feeders with warm, soapy water, and sanitize them with a 10% bleach solution. If you’re looking to replace a feeder, try a Wild
Cold winds strip heat from birds very quickly. Birds will seek refuge from the wind in dense vegetation, natural cavities, birdhouses, or roosting pockets. Roosting pockets provide birds with a warm, dry location that can help protect them from cold, nasty winter weather.
Birds need water in winter to maintain their feathers for effective insulation. Use a heated bird bath or add a heater to your existing plastic or metal bird bath. This will help make some water available even on the coldest day. Some concrete baths with an added heater may not be able to handle freezing weather and are better stored away for winter. To be safe, place a plastic bird bath dish with a built-in heater on the existing pedestal.
