Last month, I had not blogged that much because I had my uncle in law’s funeral, my elderly dog’s illness, and – more sales in my etsy shop. It was crazy busy for me. Unfortunately, I still cough a lot and it is not fun for me.
Here you go, February always be sweet and love. When my husband and I went to Orchard’s Gardening and Landscaping store, he needed to purchase something from this store. We stood in the waiting line and then I found one of the announcement papers, “National Bird-Feeding Month.” I had never seen this before.. It must be very interesting…
Now, I am writing here to tell you why National Bird-Feeding Month is very important in February. Many people love to feed the birds in order to enjoy watching them. They also educate the children to help feeding the birds. When I was a kid, I feed the birds nearby the fountain with my late grandmother who taught me how to do this. Sometimes, bird-feeding can be the part of a favorite hobby for people.
According to National Bird-Feeding Month, Wikipedia:
“Mr. Speaker, I would like to recognize February, one of the most difficult months in the United States for wild birds, as National Bird-Feeding Month. During this month, individuals are encouraged to provide food, water, and shelter to help wild birds survive. This assistance benefits the environment by supplementing wild bird’s natural diet of weed seeds and insects. Currently, one third of the U.S. adult population feeds wild birds in their backyards.
In addition, Mr. Speaker, backyard bird feeding is an entertaining, educational, and inexpensive pastime enjoyed by children and adults. Bird feeding provides a needed break from today’s frantic lifestyles. Adults enjoy the relaxation and peacefulness afforded by watching birds — nature serves to relieve the stress and can get one’s day going on a tranquil note.
Young children are naturally drawn to the activities involved in feeding wild birds, which can serve as excellent educational tools. Children can identify different species of birds with a field guide and can learn about the birds’ feeding and living habits. These observations can then provide excellent research opportunities for school projects and reports.
Feeding wild birds in the backyard is an easy hobby to start and need not overtax the family budget. It can be as simple as mounting a single feeder outside a window and filling it with bird seed mix. For many people, the hobby progresses from there. They discover the relationship between the type and location of feeders, and the seeds offered in them, and the number and varieties of birds attracted. Parents can challenge an inquisitive child’s mind as they explore together these factors in trying to encourage visits by their favorite birds.”
In 2013, Westbrook Boys Varsity Basketball began their state playoff run with the theme “Feed The Birds.”
