Preorder forms for the bird seed sale are due Friday, Nov. 29, at Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street. Seed pick up is Dec. 8.
Non-migrating birds expend a lot of energy finding food in the frozen winter landscape. They spend their winter days eating continuously in order to obtain enough calories to keep them warm during the night. A good choice for food is black oil sunflower seed, safflower seeds (squirrels and grackles don’t like it), nyjer and suet.
