    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    We just had a late winter snowfall of about 9

    inches. The four bird feeders are the place to be, a big huge happy crowd. This is very satisfying.

    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...
