|with Gene Harrington of the Nashua Farmers|
Gene Harrington of Nashua Farmers Exchange will speak on "Birds in Winter."
What are the nutritional needs of the birds in the winter? Which types of birds can you expect to find visiting your feeder? There are a number of bird seed products on the market. Which gives you the best benefit for the price and will they stay fresh through the winter? Should you offer suet along with the seed mix? If so are there effective squirrel, bear and deer deterrents? What are some of the options for providing water when the temperature drops below freezing? Gene Harrington of Nashua Farmers Exchange will share with us what he has learned in his years of experience in the care of birds during winter in New England.
Gene holds degrees in Wildlife Biology and Entomology and has been employed as a researcher for Blue Seal.
In business since 1991 Nashua Farmers Exchange believes in a natural, holistic approach to gardening and animal care, bringing to you animal feed, seeds, fertilizers and pest controls that are safe for pets, people and the environment. Visit their website at www.nashuafarmers.com.
Their annual truckload wild bird seed sale will be Thursday, November 13 - Saturday, November 15. A great way to stock up on a wide variety of food for the birds.
