Birds having easier go this spring

It is safe to say Door County has been easier on the birds this spring than last year. Door County is a year removed from a crippling snowfall that dumped 30 inches of snow on the area, making it hard for birds and other wildlife reliant on foraging food. Even with last Thursday’s snowfall and the standing water still prevalent in the area, The Ridges Sanctuary Land Manager Matt Peter says birds are very good at adapting to their environment.

Peter says if another snowfall does come like what happened in southern Wisconsin and other Midwestern states over the weekend that they should clear a small area for birds and provide a place where they can take a breather and enjoy a high-energy snack like berries and mealworms.
