Clean feeders after the rain

If you didn't bring your feeders indoors during the heavy rain this weekend, you better check it.  Chances are the seed is wet. If it's not moldy, dump the seed onto a cookie sheet and dry it on a low temperature in the oven.  If it's already moldy then dump it in the garbage.  
Either way, clean your feeder using a 10% bleach solution. Then rinse, dry thoroughly and refill.

Your birds will thank you!

Happy birding!
