I Love Feeding Backyard Birds

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 100 People

    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...

    my house has some pretty thick woods behind it, and my mom buys a mixture of bird seed and "critter food," which is a blend of dried fruit, seeds, and nuts. we put a bunch of seed out in the morning for the birds who come during the day, and later in the evening...

    We had a lot of them back where I was, I wish I could have brought them with. There was a pelican in the neighbors yard now though! LMFAO! "Look at the pelican...gooo pelican!"

    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...

    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...

    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...

    To Harm A Mockingbird

    I don't really want to harm him, maybe just scare him a little.I like to feed the birds on my deck. I sprinkle the seed along the railing, the birds come, a nice variety; it is nice.This winter however, a Mockingbird showed up and he has staked out my deck as his. I unwittingly...

    My Bird Tree

    I have a very tall Eucalyptus tree that is my 'bird tree'. Hanging from its branches are peanut and seed tubes and a large water dish. I love watching the birds in the tree. The black birds bath every day and splash around in the water.  Smaller birds dart in and out to...

    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...
