Live in the Tropics with 2 warm seasons: wet and dry ?!?

Turn on your global weather channel and go several hundred miles North/South of the Equator for inspiration while exploring this unit.

Wherever you live, it is always important to Feed The Birds. Use the Feed the Birds Project Needs to help you create several Eateries your feathered friends will enjoy again and again. Make sure to do some research on what foods your particular birds need to thrive.
