    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
