Birdfreak - the jays really "get into it" while bathing. I've seen that wide-spread tail on a number of them as they bathe.
Our Purple Finches are regulars but this has been a banner year for them. There are almost always 6-15 of them around constantly! We love 'em.

The Blue Jay bathing is great! I love Purple Finches, they do not visit our yard much at all, but we did see one last winter so we are hopeful! I am glad you use eBird, we started reporting this year and it is a great tool.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
