boil water advisory. what do?

We are under a boil water advisory and have been for a day(only found out today tho). Our stores of water in the house are depleted, so we need to get more from the tap. Boiling should be fine for us, but what about the birds? IDK what to do. Bottled is not an option, as we are rained in(have been since about a week before Thanksgiving now).

News says it is from flood water overwhelming the utility company's ability to treat water to "drinking water" standards. Locals schools in 2 counties are closed, restaraunts are buying 2 liter sodas so they can continue to offer some (non boiled) drinks to customers.

They are predicting the advisory to be in effect for another 2-3 days at least.
