It’s been a quiet week for bird reports with the hot weather. Peanuts have
been in high demand with the large amounts of chickadees reported around
Nanaimo. Numerous reports of various woodpecker species have come in,
especially for those with suet feeders.

Remember: Everyone needs water, birds included. In this dry weather putting
out a small dish of water will help our feathered friends keep hydrated this
summer. And the addition of water to your backyard will help attract bird
species that don’t eat bird seed.
