Another reason to not feed birds this time of year...it causes them to congregate and potentially expose themselves to conjunctivitis (finches). Think social distancing for birds.
Just my too sense Ali

The main reason for bringing in feeders, as far as I am aware, is bears. But not all feeders are in bear territory. My feeder, for instance, is still out. If a bear wants to climb three sets of stairs in downtown Montpelier, he's welcome to, but I don't think it's very likely.
