Put Out Water!
updated: May 14, 2014, 1:08 PM

By Seedlady

In this heat, please put out extra dishes and basins of water for the critters, in shade and near cover if you can.

It's 100 in Nipomo, I have 6 basins being used non-stop by birds. Bigger critters will need extra water too, so put it out on your yard fringes, so as not to draw them in too far.

Keep refilling. I filled and ran baths at 6 am to attract birds by the sound, and was refilling at 11 because they were getting empty. Still getting hit hard at noon. (unusual to be used now) IF you have a kiddee pool, fill with a couple inches of water for the bigger birds.
