CT Audubon Society hosts February bird seed sale

Annual sale supports National Bird-Feeding Month

Bird-feeder-at-Burr-StFebruary is a grueling month for wild birds in the northern United States. As the wind whips and snow flies, most birds, with the average weighing less than two nickels, require extra energy and fat reserves to keep warm and sustain life during winter’s cold and food-scarce conditions. To support supplemental feeding for our backyard feathered friends, The Connecticut Audubon Society will recognize National Bird Feeding Month by offering birdseed for sale at a 20% discount through the entire month of February.

The Center at Fairfield Nature Store offers a wide selection of quality bird seed for attracting the greatest variety of birds to your feeder. Suet and seeds that are 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. Safflower seed is another good choice and has the added bonus that squirrels and grackles don’t like it!

Knowledgeable staff at the Nature Store can provide 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 also available year ‘round to fit all your needs, as are birding accessories and field guides.

To take advantage of the sale, simply stop by the Nature Store, 2325 Burr Street in Fairfield, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
