Fall is the best time to trim trees

The breeding season is over so if you must trim your trees, it's a good time to do it. 

But please remember to keep some foliage around your yard so the birds can escape from predators, especially if you have bird feeders. 

Begin to watch for hummingbird nests by late November.  Before trimming, take the time to watch the tree for at least a half hour.  If you see a female hummingbird going in and out, there is a good chance she's building a nest.

Please pass this information along to your homeowner's association if you have one. Let's keep our birds safe.

Happy birding!
