During the winter, wild birds are often helped by people putting out feeders.
In February 2012, Kaytee is actively participating in National Wild Bird-Feeding Month by offering both in-store and online promotions for consumers to partake in the celebration.
During National Wild Bird-Feeding Month, individuals are encouraged to provide food, water and shelter to help wild birds survive during the coldest month of the year, when food resources are scarce and wild birds rely on human support during this critical time.
Kaytee is partnering with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s project to help scientists learn more about the health of birds and help people learn more about the birds in their backyards. Kaytee is a proud sponsor of the 25th Anniversary of the Project FeederWatch program and will offer a $5 discount on memberships for Project FeederWatch. For more information visit their website.
“Our hope is that people will understand the importance of wild bird feeding this time of year,” said Rebecca Propson, Kaytee’s marketing manager. “And we do just that by educating and offering incentives to encourage both birder hobbyists and new users to feed wild birds.”
