You've probably noticed a change in the cast of characters in your yard and at your feeders. White-throated Sparrows and Juncos (aka snowbirds) are around again and the number of chickadees, titmice and nuthatches have increased after the nesting season.
That means it's time again to stock up on seed! Support RCAS by buying seed at one of two locations on Saturday, November 1. We'll be at Blue Seal Feeds on Route 7 just south of Brandon and Garland's Agway on Park Street in Rutland. The sale at each location runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Once again seed prices are good and there is no sales tax if you purchase from us on that date. Cash or check only please.
The seed sale is open to all - members and non-members alike. If you aren't a member, we'd love to have you join us and, if you sign up at the seed sale, you'll receive a free birdhouse.
Please stop by and see us! We'd love to talk about birds with you!
Reminder: If you live in an area where bears have been spotted, delay feeding until December 1.
