How to make your backyard safe for birds

When you’re in your backyard, keep your water in check.

That means using a water filter and disinfectant.

If you’re using an indoor water system, treat the water with a chlorine or chloramine rinse and let it sit out for 10 minutes to flush out bacteria.

For outdoor water systems, use an outdoor air filtration system that can remove chlorine, chloramine and other contaminants.

Use a water treatment solution if your home is in an industrial or residential area.

Clean up after your bird, too.

If your bird is sick, make sure it’s isolated and that there’s no other people in the area who are sick.

Be sure to get the bird a healthy meal and keep them away from other animals.

If you live in a condominium or condominium complex, use the same procedures for both your condominium and condo complex.

The condo unit or complex can have a separate, separate filtrate system for each condominium unit or condo, depending on the type of unit and condo.
