    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...

    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...

    Coffee, Seeds and Me

    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...

    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...

    Who Really Was Watching Whom??

    I just finished filling the bird feeders in the backyard.  I filled 2 feeders with regular bird seed, 1 feeder with thistle, 1 hummingbird feeder with the sweeten liquid and scattered some seed on the lawn in a corner of the yard.  As I finished and stopped to survey...

    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...

    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...

    Today I saw a cormorant flying. Usually they just sit on the pontoons in the dock or dive to catch fish. I was surprised how big the wings were.
