News From ASWP

Feed the Birds!

We are excited to announce that the bird illness has waned in our region--time to put those bird feeders back outside!


Remember, it’s vitally important to keep them clean. Here’s a quick overview:

  • Clean feeders at least weekly to help to keep birds healthy.

  • Feeders may be disinfected with a bleach solution (1/2 cup of bleach per gallon of water).

  • First, clean your feeder with soap and water.

  • Then soak the feeder in the bleach solution for 15-20 minutes.

  • Completely rinse and dry the feeder before refilling it.


Bird Sightings Wanted!

Carole Winslow is the Clarion County compiler for the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology. She sends quarterly reports for publication in their journal Pennsylvania Birds. These reports are usually published in our newsletter also.
