Help Pine Siskins by Practicing Safe Bird Feeding
As many have noticed, Pine Siskins are everywhere this year, bringing larger numbers of these delightful birds to our yards and feeders. Right now, these birds do need our help. Our Wildlife Care Center is seeing increased admissions of flocking birds, primarily Pine Siskins. The best advice if you observe sick birds is to take down feeders to help the birds “social distance”. By taking feeders down for 14 days, we help the birds disperse and limit their exposure to concentrated feeding.
Whether you’re volunteering to clear trails at our sanctuary, submitting comments to urge local leaders to stand up for the environment, building a lush Backyard Habitat for native birds and pollinators, or attending a Nature Night event, you are a vital part of the Portland Audubon community.
Every person and every action matters, and each member of our community is instrumental in effecting positive change, protecting the environment, and advocating for Oregon’s wildlife and wild places.
