It's that time of year when we should prepare our bird houses for winter.  You'll want to clean them out (best to wear gloves) and then put them back out as they make a great place for birds to seek shelter during snow storms.

You will also want to consider putting up roosting boxes (idenified with holes at the bottom of the house as opposed to the top) so that birds can seek shelter during storms.

And, get your feeders ready by making sure they are clean and ready for seed.  Just wash well with soap and water and let them dry.

We also make sure our birdbaths are scrubbed clean using bleach and water and then we rinse very well to eradicate any bleach from the bath.  You will want to be sure to purchase an inexpensive but invaluable birdbath heater by clicking on the link embedded HERE.  You can find more resources for birdbaths HERE.
