Birdfeeders 101

Check out some Chickadees!

“Feed the birds and what do you get? FAT BIRDS!” Dick Van Dyke said in Mary Poppins.  But of course, we get a lot more than fat birds from establishing native wildlife habitat and putting out a supplemental bird feeder or two.  This week’s Making Ripples column in the Free Weekly is about birdfeeders and, specifically, facts about Chickadees, one of my favorite birds.  Here’s some more information about birds and birdfeeders:
