Big Basin Wildlife Area
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.

Throughout the year, KDWP works diligently to improve Kansas public lands. Watch this example at Benedictine Bottoms Wildlife Area near Atchison.

There are no options.
