February bird seed sale at CT Audubon

It’s been a grueling winter for wild birds in the northern United States and there are still many weeks to go. In recognition of February being National Bird-Feeding Month, Connecticut Audubon Society is offering birdseed for sale at a 20% discount. If you want to help our backyard friends, and experience the satisfaction of bird watching and helping birds survive, this is a great opportunity to shop for quality birdseed at a reduced price.

Supplemental feeding can help both birds and the environment during this difficult season. Suet and seeds high in fat and protein content such as sunflower seeds, or a blend of tree nuts and seeds, are invaluable in winter when insects and berries are harder to find and birds need many more calories to keep their bodies warm. Safflower seed is another good choice and an added bonus is that squirrels and grackles don’t like it!

The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Center at Fairfield Nature Store, offers a wide selection of Lyric bird seed for attracting the greatest variety of birds to your feeder. It is important to avoid bargain blends which often contain filler seed. Knowledgeable staff is available to offer guidance on seed choice and feeder selection, and to answer general bird-feeding questions. Many types of squirrel-resistant, pole-mounted and hanging feeders are available year ‘round to fit all your needs, as are birding accessories and field guides. The Nature Store, located in Fairfield at 2325 Burr Street, is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
