The early feeder gets the birds

Don't miss out on early morning bird feeding peak

Birds on feeder

The sun is rising earlier as we get further into spring - you're likely to notice more birds chirping as you awaken and more activity around your feeders. You may want to adjust your own bird feeding schedule so you don't miss out on all the activity at your feeder. Early morning is a key feeding time of day as birds seek to top off their energy reserves lost from the prior evening. This is a great time to take advantage of filling your feeders and feeding areas - so grab your cup of coffee and check to see which feeders need to be topped off.

Cardinals, blue jays, robins, chickadees, juncos, mourning doves, woodpeckers can be active shortly after sunrise. If you have food available for them, you’re more likely to draw these colorful birds and keep them coming back. Cardinals often also return late in the day. You’re more likely to attract them if they see you have a food source in the morning.

Robins typically are not seed eaters. They will eat tree nuts and fruit. Foods like Lyric Fruit & Nut and Lyric Fine Tunes can draw them this time of the year.

It’s better to feed in the morning rather than leave food in open areas overnight. You may draw unwanted visitors like rodents and skunks. Seed in open areas may also take on moisture overnight.

Be an early bird - and you may catch a quick glance of some newcomers to your feeders!
