Frozen bird seed in the feeder no more

What do you do if you have frozen seed in your bird feeder?

I'm sure the sudden rain and then freeze resulted in a lot of frozen seed in Michigan bird feeders. Make sure to always check your feeders after bad weather. Give it a good shake to toss the seed around. If it is too frozen, bring in the feeder, clean it and fill it with new seed.

To prevent the seed from freezing again add Feeder Fresh to the seed. It is a desiccant that absorbs any water that gets into the feeder. The seed flows freely and the birds are happy. You can also add a weather guard to cover the feeder. This also shelters the feeder as well as the birds that are feeding from bad weather.
