    Peaceful But Exhilerating

    It is so enjoyable to nurture the native birds in my neighborhood with trees, shrubs, feeders, houses, and baths to keep them safe and healthy. My yard borders a wildlife preserve and I have everything from finches and cardinals to pheasants and turkeys in my yard. This...

    The City Or Rural Of Aberdeen, Wa Irrony

    I usually like to Bird Watch. My Vision seems to discourage me, because it's so hard to see things as quick flashes and grasp what I see immediately. Even with Binoculars, it takes me time to get the Binoculars pointed at a Bird, by as long as it will stick around longer...

    Love to start the day on the deck with a steaming cup of black coffee, a handful of peanuts and sunflower seeds and me waiting for the morning visitors. There is a tribe of woodpeckers, a band of bluejays and the hummingbirds are the first to decend.  Then along come...

    Watching Sea Birds

      Today I saw my very first Puffins whilst exploring the cliffs and rocky coves of North Wales. I thought they would be easy to spot but they are so well camouflaged despite their colourful beaks. The best way to spot them was to look out for their orange feet. They...

    Empty Feeders

    This morning the sun was shining and I could hear the birds chirping, over my husband volcano like snores echoing from the bedroom.  I turned to look out the kitchen window and watched the birds fighting over the last little bit of seed in the feeders.  The pecking...
