Robin redbreast digging for worms in your lawn and new songs and birds at your feeders are a happy sign that our crazy winter is over.

Be sure to take down the old feeders and give them a good scrubbing in soap and warm water.  It may be time to get a new one to help brighten your yard too.

If you have a bird bath it needs a cleaning too to be sure it is algae free.  Otherwise, always keep a bowl of fresh water near the feeders for the birds to drink.

Now is the time birds will be building nests.  They'll think you're tops if you provide them with straw, grass clippings, even dog and cat fur for building material and will sing their little hearts out to thank you.

Keep cats indoors for their safety and the safety of wild birds - especially this time of year when baby birds are being born.
