As the excitement builds towards the solar eclipse on August 21st, we are fielding lots of questions about what impact this spectacular event will have on birds and other wildlife.
There are numerous anecdotal accounts and observations that appear to show that many species of birds and other wildlife do react in different ways to the eclipse. These reactions can occur as the eclipse progresses and enters totality, as well as when the sun re-emerges.
Here are some of the reactions by birds and wildlife that have been reported to occur during previous total eclipses:
We're Amy Legg & Kellie Watts and we recently purchased the Wild Birds Unlimited store located in Warson Woods, MO. We're anxious to get to know you and to help you enjoy your backyard bird feeding hobby. Please stop by the store soon to introduce yourself.
You have your favorite places to eat, whether it’s a quick bite or a really nice meal. You trust and rely on them, never considering they might run out of food. Birds are similar. They constantly check their food sources. They may stay and eat a while or just grab a quick bite. But, they want to know they can rely on that food source when weather is good or bad or when times are abundant or lean.
So in order to meet your birds’ needs, it is important to have at least one foundational feeder that dependably provides food every day. Studies have demonstrated that a constant, and reliable source of supplemental food helps to improve the overall health and body condition of wild birds.
This foundational feeder should be able to accommodate many birds at one time like our hopper, tube or cylinder feeders. It should have a quality food that attracts the widest variety of birds like our No-Mess Blend or No-Mess Cylinder. It should hold enough food for at least 4 days giving birds a reliable food source, ensuring you’ll have more birds to watch! Be sure it works for you, too, by placing it where it is easy to fill and easy to see.
Having a foundational feeder in your yard that never goes empty is key to helping birds improve and maintain their overall health and helping you enjoy more birds. Visit our store to learn more about maintaining a foundational feeder in your backyard.
