Cuyahoga County Ohio backyard birds
There is no harm in feeding birds through the summer! They are unlikely to eat as much as they do during the winter but will appreciate the extra snack while building nests and feeding their young! It is possible to feed suet during the summer but you have to take a few precautions. If temperatures are consistently above 90 degrees the suet will melt. It can also soften and become a mess if the temperatures do not drop enough at night. Try keeping the suet in a shady area or freezing it before feeding. Also try to limit the suet offered to what will be consumed in a day!
