ANNUAL BIRDSEED FUNDRAISER
The chapter will again be partnering with Snyder’s Nursery at the Feed
Mill in Montoursville
to offer a selection of quality birdseed for the fall and winter to our
friends. Thank goodness the mysterious songbird mortality event from
this summer has sub sided and the PA Game Commission has lifted it’s
recommendation that we take our feeders
down. Quite a relief there, on multiple counts! You’ll note on the
attached Birdseed Sale order form that the prices have gone up this season, some of them pretty
understand that this is partly due to Covid-related issues with
processing and shipping, but also that the severe and
prolonged drought in the western U.S. where sunflower and some of the
other seeds are grown is depressing crop
yields and driving up the price to us. So, buy some seed and support
Lycoming Audubon if you can, and enjoy feeding
our feathered friends as the cold season approaches!
