Nature Report: Local Birds Need Fresh Water Today by Nancy Nichols Posted in News for Twitchers!, Snow Days!. Feb 01, 2011 at 11:25 am 6 comments My yellow-throated warbler, Spike, needs your help. If your birdbath is frozen, please de-ice it and fill with fresh water. Repeat as it freezes. Your backyard birds will thank you.

Will go put out some water too. Thanks for the tip. http://www.eatingindallas.wordpress.com Margie Nice suggestion. We have a non-frozen water source, thank goodness. Of course, now my husband is out there putting out more seed because I mentioned it. Cold day for the birdies! Jef Thanks for the reminder Nancy. I went out and broke the ice on the fountain while my SigO looked at me like a mad man wearing a hoodie, crocks and using my broom handle smashing stick (he even took sneaky video). Went to refill the birdseed only to realize I was out. Sorry fine feathered friends. I’ll plan ahead next time. http://sidedish.wpengine.com Nancy Nichols If you have peanut butter, slather some on the trunks of your trees. Jeannie Yea a Uncle Nacy bird post!! I miss them.
