COLD WEATHER IS FOR THE BIRDS!
Dunbarton resident and avid bird watcher Phil Baer, suggests that we not forget about our feathered friends during cold spells. In a recent community email he suggested the following: "In weather like we're having, water becomes critical for the birds. If you have a feeder, please see if you can find a place for a water dish. I'm using a clay houseplant dish, but a pie pan, or a container lid, anything  between 1/2 and 1" deep will work. Mine is on the shelf of the grill, but any table will work, or on the deck railing. They'll find it. You'll have to thaw and replace every few hours, but the birds will really appreciate the effort. I'm refilling with very warm water about four times a day. Several times we've had three birds drinking and more waiting their turn. With both ponds frozen over, and no snow on the ground, it's a desperate situation for them. Give the birds water and enjoy watching them."

CELEBRATE!
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! ALL THE BEST TO EVERYONE FOR 2018!
