Bird Feeder Basics

If you're thinking of feeding the birds this winter, be sure to check out two must-read posts from my favorite naturalist bloggers. The folks at Westmoreland Sanctuary's Nature Notes have recently posted Getting Started, which offers critical how-to tips for the novice on everything from which kind of feeder to purchase to where it should be placed. Solutions for Squirrels has some good ideas on how to keep the feed for the birds and away from the squirrels (such as mixing a little Cayenne pepper into the bird seed—who knew?).
