Backyard birding video series: Changing seasons

November 07, 2013 at 01:58 PM

Fall is the time of year when nature’s bounty is on full display.

Crops are being harvested, and wildflowers and grasses have set seed.

Nature’s table is set.

And that’s one reason activity at your bird feeders drops off during the autumn months.

Don’t worry, though.

Once the weather turns cold, the birds will be back.

Check out the latest installment of our Backyard Birding Video Series to learn more about fall bird feeding – and to see some stunning fall foliage.

Videos in the series are intended to be informative and entertaining, and answer some basic questions about backyard bird feeding, identification and observation.

For mobile users that may have trouble seeing the videos, the entire library is compiled into a YouTube playlist at: http://tinyurl.com/sjrbirds.
