First and foremost…water. Having a clean supply of water is the most important thing you can do for your birds. Food is also important. A regular, reliable supply of food will replace some of the natural food they’ll be losing during these extreme conditions.
As for hummingbirds – nectar is critically important. Hummingbird feeders will replace the nectar of many of our plants that are failing due to drought conditions.
And for woodpeckers, if you are feeding suet right now, you may want to consider using a suet dough product that resists melting during these extreme high temperatures.
