WATER

bird bath deicer Birds like all animals need water to survive. In the summer, a bird bath or a fountain are great source for them. Heated birdbaths are ideal for Canadian winters. Thunder Bay Feeds has deicers that will fit in your birdbath or a heated pet bowl will work also.

Deicer for birdbaths 250W or 500W
Heated Pet Bowls 1qt or 5qt

Birds have no problems melting snow & ice to drink but fresh liquid water will attract them to your yard. Moving water can be heard for miles by the birds. It is very important to clean water sources regularly to prevent contamination and mildew growth.

SHELTER OR NESTING SITESbird house

Birds must feel safe and protected for predators and cats. Shelter is the trees and shrubs in your yard. If you have the room, you can make a brush pile to help them hide when needed.

Nesting Sites can be the trees but you can also hang birdhouses. You can leave out materials that the birds would use to make a nest such as; pieces of string or wool, cotton fluff, or pile of grass clippings or small pieces of branches.

Be patient and enjoy!

Bird Feeding Tips
  • Pick a feeder for the type of birds you would like to see or have around: tube feeders are better for the little birds, bigger surfaces will allow bigger birds to land.
  • Keep the feeder well stocked so the birds won't start looking for feed elsewhere and leave.
  • Monitor and replace or replenish as needed; this will avoid waste and keep feed fresh. Avoid wet or mouldy feed.
  • Clean feeders with hot soapy water and rinse well to prevent mould or mildew.
  • If possible, have fresh clean water available - even in the winter.
