February-National Bird Feeding Month

On February 23, 1994, Congressman John Porter (R-IL) proclaimed February as National Bird-Feeding Month.  This celebratory month was created to educate the public on the wild bird feeding and bird watching.  In particular, with February being a winter month, food and resources that birds count on are scarce. 

Celebrate National Bird Feeding Month at home.

  • Put a feeder in your yard to attract different kinds of birds.
  • Add a place with water.
  • Do some bird watching
