Feed The Birds Day Answered
"Feed the Birds Day" is, oddly, two days - the weekend of 25th and 26th October 2008.
All around the UK, RSPB volunteers will be holding events where the public can learn what to feed garden and wild birds, how to do it properly, and why it is important.
You, too, no matter where you are reading this, should be doing your part for your local birdlife, since bird species around the planet are plunging in numbers at a frankly horrifying rate.
Follow one of the existing projects, create your own bird-feeding Instructable, or just feed the birds, but every contribution will help.
Did you know that a typical nest full of sparrow-sized birds will need anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 feeds of insects to make it as far as fledging?
