Does the wildlife trash ordinance apply to bird feeders?

There are no restrictions on bird feeders. However, it is best to not feed birds from April 15 to November 15. If you do feed birds, it is recommended that you suspend bird feeders at least 10 feet off the ground and 10 feet away from places bears can access. Bird feeders should be brought inside at night and stored in a secure structure, along with any seed or sugar water.
