    I Miss The Cardinals

    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!"

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
