08-17-19 Wild Birds Unlimited Warwick - The 95.9 Company Break

August 27th, 2019

This month on The 95.9 Company Break we talk with Wild Birds Unlimited of Warwick owner Richard Del Sesto, backyard & wild bird expert Jane and retail specialist Nicholas. Summer is the most heavily bird-populated season in most of North America. Access to bird feeders allows nesting females to spend less time foraging, which can lead to better protection of eggs from predators, earlier fledging of the nestlings and higher survival rates of the broods. Once fledglings leave the nest, watch as their parents teach them to eat from your feeders. It's a fascinating interaction! For more information call 401-826-0606 or visit warwick.wbu.com
