While it can be entertaining over the winter to watch birds visiting feeders set up in our backyards, you might want to consider taking them down as the weather warms up.

As hibrenating bears begin to emerge from their dens in the spring, bird feeders are an attractant for not only bears but rodents too, WildSafeBC says.

WildSafe says if you love to bird watch consider setting up a bird bath during the summer months instead, or consider taking a walk in nature to see birds and wildlife in their natural settings.

Check out the video below for amazing footage of birds captured by WildSafeBC trail cameras.
