National Bird Feeding MonthCelebrate National Bird Feeding Month in February

Cupid isn’t the only winged object that people need to watch out for this month. In 1994, the United States Congress proclaimed February to be National Bird Feeding Month.

Backyard bird feeding is enjoyed by over 52 million North Americans. And while February is National Wild Bird Feeding Month, with the right provisions, people can enjoy a wide variety of backyard birds all year long.

The Great Backyard Bird Count, a joint project between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, also occurs this month. Individuals, families, schools and organizations are invited to count birds at bird feeders and in backyards, local parks or other locations. Those tallies are then reported online through the Great Backyard Bird Count web site. This data helps define bird ranges, populations, migration pathways and habitat needs.

The count is fun, easy and educational. It’s also a terrific way for Cornell and Audubon to learn more about the abundance and distribution of bird species.

People can increase the variety of birds that visit their backyards by providing the appropriate foods in the right location.

Backyard birds usual fall into three feeding categories: ground-feeding, elevated feeding and a combination of both. For example, goldfinches prefer to eat Nyjer® (thistle seed) from a hanging tube feeder, whereas juncos generally eat millet on the ground, and cardinals most often feed on the ground, but will also use elevated feeders.
