blog action day! https://www.wrenradio.com/2010/10/14/blog-action-day/ Thu, 14 Oct 2010 17:01:47 +0000 https://www.wrenradio.com/?p=78 This year’s theme is water. This is perfect for birds- in fact, birds need water more often than food. You can provide fresh, clean water for birds just by putting a bowl of water out for them. Of course and bird bath or fountain is better. I just use an extra dog food bowl and put it on the porch banner near some bushes. This works for water and baths- it’s pretty fun to watch little chickadees splash around.

This year, help your fine feathered friends by providing a fresh drink of water.

Blog Action Day: Climate Change is not for the Birds! https://www.wrenradio.com/2009/10/15/45/ Thu, 15 Oct 2009 15:20:45 +0000 https://www.wrenradio.com/?p=45 This year the Blog Action Day (www.blogactionday.org)  topic is climate change.   Of course it comes as no  surprise that birds are affected by climate change. We know this to be true as 40 years of data from the Audubon Christmas Bird count reveals changes in the wintering range of almost all North American birds.  While the average change is 35 miles, some of these range changes are over 100 miles .

Climate change- yet another threat to our precious bird life.  For more information from the National Audubon please visit: http://birdsandclimate.audubon.org/

Here is a graph from the Audubon article of  movement of  winter ranges for 20 species  http://tinyurl.com/yk85yw5
