Marion Youth Upland Hunt
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.

Marion County hosted a special youth hunt for pheasants on a reserved habitat, but frozen snow made the hunting difficult.

There are no options.
