Wishbone's Household Tips:

Let's talk birds! What do you get when you cross a centipede with a parrot? A walkie-talkie!!!! (Wishbone cracks himself up. Let's not encourage his joke telling and instead focus on his tips.)  

1.Wild birds won't return to an unreliable food source. Refilling feeders promptly will attract a wider variety of birds in every season and will help keep the feeder clean and in good repair. 

2.Using any sweetener other than plain white sugar to make nectar for hummingbirds can be dangerous. 

3.A dirty feeder can become clogged, and wet or spoiled seed can transmit diseases to backyard birds, which can then spread to an entire neighborhood flock.
