Wild animals are facing a strenuous time of year as winter settles in. In celebration of National Bird-feeding Month (February), University of Illinois Extension educator Peggy Doty guides you on how to provide appropriate winter food for our feathered friends. Information on what food to avoid, feeder care, water requirements, and budgeting for the winter commitment of feeding local non-migratory species will be discussed. This webinar also offers basic bird-watching techniques to help novice birders better identify their winter guests. This webinar was made possible by the Pauline J. and John R. Cook Lecture Fund.
