For those of you who have taken down your bird feeders this summer — a sincere thank you for caring about Connecticut’s birds. The good news: It’s okay to start feeding birds again. — an announcement from the Connecticut Audubon Society, in a version published in GreenwichFreePress.com
But if you decide to do so, there are still a few precautions you should heed. State environmental officials said today that the number of dead birds being reported in Connecticut has dropped to about a quarter of what it had been in recent weeks. As a result, the Connecticut Audubon Society is joining the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection in dropping its recommendation that people take in their backyard bird feeders and bird baths.
