    Baltimore Orioles

    The Baltimore Orioles are back for the second year.  We have a suet feeder that they visit, but I put half an orange on top of it (through the hanger) and they really like that!  I also put out some grape jelly just the other day and they love that!!!  Much to...

    I Have Seen So Many More Species......

    In Dec of 2006 we sold our house in town and moved out to the country.  I have seen more different types of birds here that I would never had a chance to see had we stayed in town.  I have a humming bird feeder which I have to refill every 3-4 days.  The...

    Popcorn

    I don't set out feeders or anything...but I do always give the last third of my popcorn to my feathery friends!  I don't use the prepackaged microwave stuff, all I'm giving them is popcorn, salt, and a bit of margarine. Often someone will grab a kernel in his beak and perch on...

    Feed the Birds

    Believe it or not, I actually started feeding birds to entertain my indoor cat.    He would sit by the window and watch them for hours.   Now I do it for me.   I love seeing all the different kinds of birds that stop by.   I have...

    I Am Not a Birdwatcher

    For the record, I am not a birdwatcher. I do not coo in admiration when I see a furry headed nitwit. I do not plan on being some old queen with white knee socks and madras shorts and a bad toupee who goes around with binoculars in Central Park. Ok maybe, if that's what it...

    Floating Free Of Time

    I love birds. I love feeding them because I'm selfish and I want to attract them to myself so that I can get up close and personal and enjoy them. I see it as a win/ win situation basically, as I buy nothing but the best and I am fastidious about the birdbath.I especially love...

    My Bird Tree

    Help Wanted: Birdfeeder Bouncer

    I have one of those in-the-window feeders with the two-way mirror plexiglas window. This is always a busy place for my backyard birds; it is about five feet away from a lilac hedge, so the birds feel very safe flying back and forth to grab a snack. Depending on the time of year...

    Big Bertha's 24 Hour Backyard Buffet~~~I had

    noticed that, unlike the other birdhouses, this one has not sported a little family. I figured out why... no breakfast to go with the bed! :-)Soooo, I not only bought them a bird feeder for this area, I chose a gargantuan! They now have a regular pig out at their little bird...

    Spring Must Be On It's Way!

    I love to feed the birds in our yard.  I do it year round and I don't mind the other critters that help themselves.  Behind my house is a garden and on the other side of the garden is our main bird feeder.  I love looking out there, but it's been a long winter...
