    I have Blue Jays, cardinals, brown thrushes, indigo buntings, chickadees, mockingbirds, wood peckers, and an occasional Eastern Towhee. I love these birds. They are so funny to watch. I bought a bird book and like to look up new species as I see them. I buy seed in bulk. Love...

    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...

    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...

    And I Enjoy Seeing New Birds For The First Time

    This week I saw a Blue Grosbeak on the feeders for the first time ... since I didn't know what it was at the time I was wondering if it was some sort of bunting, and it is in fact related closest to buntings and cardinals

    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...
