HAS SPRING SPRUNG?
A few of our midwestern wild bird feeding members have noticed with warmer weather coming, the birds are too! Spring isn't quite here yet, but as the weather starts changing the migration will be in full swing.
Check out this live migration as the seasons change in your area by BirdCast. Once March 1st comes, you can even check out your local migration alerts, how cool?

Bird Conservation & Domestic Cats
Grant Sizemore, ABC's Director of Invasive Species Programs, presents Bird Conservation and Domestic Cats. Domestic cats (Felis catus) make wonderful pets, but these animals can also cause serious harm to birds (and other wildlife) when allowed to roam outdoors. This talk will review the conservation challenges associated with outdoor domestic cats and identify solutions for a more sustainable future.
