The Effects of this Harsh Summer Weather

Sep 9, 2022 | The Sandpiper

This was a challenging summer weather-wise with unprecedented drought and heat. I lost many of my “bird staples” this summer. All my blueberries dies, I lost my whole crop of Elderberr y and I doubt I will see any fruit on my Viburnum – all things I count on for my backyard birds. The Coneflower and Black Eyed Susan are shriveled. It will be unlikely that there will be seeds sitting on those flowers for winter feeding. 

Be aware in the coming months that there will likely be less for birds and other wildlife to forage this winter. Consider purchasing quality food and high energy suet to help your birds through the winter.
