Bald Buck
If I feed birds at a backyard feeder, will they become dependent and suffer if my feeder isn't refilled?

Feeders only supplement natural foods, so most species will not suffer if feeders go empty. Songbirds forage for food in a variety of places, and when one source runs out, they move to another.

Watch as a disgruntled white-tailed buck, sans antlers, takes out his frustrations on lesser wildlife at a feeding area.

There are no options.
