Thistle Feeders

Feeder Tips to Keep Birds Safe & Healthy:

* The seed you saved over the winter will NOT be any good next spring or vice versa.

* Do not put new thistle on top of old thistle. Pour the old into something, put your fresh thistle in the feeder, then put the old seed on top. This will keep the feeder cleaner and the old seed from getting yucky and moldy on the bottom which will make birds sick.

* Empty and dry your feeder out after heavy rain.

* Take your feeder apart and wash the whole thing well in soapy water at least once a season.
