Donate your summer berries!
Do you have ripe berries in your yard that you don’t know what to do with? CWRS is looking for donations of edible berries (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, saskatoon, currants, chokecherry, blackberry) to help us feed the ravenous appetites of our songbirds! We go through enormous amounts of berries in the summer feeding animals such as waxwings, robins, sparrows, wrens, magpies, crows, ravens and squirrels. Donations should be clearly marked as to the type of berry. Frozen berries are welcome!
Did you know that all young birds spend time on the ground? Fledgling birds are too big for the nest but cannot quite fly yet, and end up spend time on the ground learning how to fly. This is normal behavior! Parents will be nearby protecting and feeding their young during this transition. Most fledglings have almost all their feathers, and are only slightly smaller than adults. If you see a fledgling bird, admire it from a far. As long as the parents are around, it doesn’t need help.
