River Otters
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 river otters play and eat in a southeastern Kansas pond near Big Sugar Creek.

There are no options.
