February is Wild Bird Feeding Month, Florida!

It’s February! Time for hearts and flowers and boxes of candy, and… feeding Florida’s wild bird population. Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology, along with the National Audubon Society, have partnered with Wild Birds Unlimited to create the, “Great Backyard Bird Count”. This joint effort will involve local wild bird watching enthusiasts in helping to collect data on the migration and habits of wild birds all over the United States.

There are many ways you can get involved and help ensure Florida’s wild bird population remains a healthy and vibrant part of our natural environment.

First, sign up for the GBBC by going to Cornell’s website, here. Then, head to your local Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop in Clearwater/Safety Harbor and stock up on seed, feed and supplies to make sure your Florida backyard habitat is the best it can be.

We carry a wide variety of optics and other tools for the beginning bird watcher or the seasoned wild bird enthusiast. With great brands like Denali, Shrike and Vortex, you’re sure to be able to spot the best and the brightest of Florida’s wild birds! Come to the shop today and ask Carl about all the terrific options for your best wild bird watching experience.
