This is a great time of year to do bird feeder clean up.  As some one  
recommended the lull of birds is the best time to spruce up feeders,  
clean out bird baths and replace with the heated kind. Wash out bird  
boxes and let dry in the sun. I also empty and wash out the containers  
that I store my seed in which get filled with dust and debris. We did  
our first round-up of leaves and garden clean up yesterday exposing  
the mulch that hide all those bugs. Our yard has 3 sections of cedar  
trees that are loaded with beautiful blue fruit and a Japanese apple.  
Both of these the birds love.
Well it all paid off......so keep the faith....
