Hi, BirdWatchers!

We have both been working in the stores a lot this past month. It's been great to get out of the office, reconnect with old friends and meet new customers. We were asked lots of questions, but most people had the same concerns, so we thought we would share them here with you.

Where are all my feeder birds? 
It was very busy winter season for finches...most of us had tons of Pine Siskins, Purple Finches and American Goldfinches. By early May, all of the Siskins and Purple Finches and most wintering Goldfinches head north for the breeding season. We do have House Finches year round, and not all the Goldfinches leave, but the numbers decrease. Most of our other resident birds like Cardinals, Chickadees, Titmice, etc. are raising young and are busy finding insects for their chicks. So don't worry that they're not eating your seed as often. They'll be back!
Where are all my hummingbirds?
This is almost always followed by the statement, "Last year I had dozens of hummingbirds!" We tend to correlate active times at our feeders with warmer weather. But, if you log numbers on a calendar, you'll notice that it is typically slow at our hummingbird feeders, also, during May and June. Adult males are guarding territories and females are busy building nests and raising young. They don't move around much. Mid-July through early September is always the busiest time at hummingbird feeders. Young birds will come off their nests then, and both young and adult birds will feed heavily to fatten up for migration. For now, just be sure to keep your feeders clean and filled with fresh nectar for occasional visitors.
I found a baby bird. What do I do?
The chart below is very helpful. Most of the time, young birds do not need our help. Just make sure they are safely out of harm's way (kids, dogs, cats, cars, fire ants, etc.) Birds have a poor sense of smell, so you can gently touch them to move if necessary. AWARE, R&R Wildlife Rehabilitation and HawkTalk are all valuable resources when needed.
