Birdfreak, Lana, Larry - thanks! Good thing this was early in the evening. If it had been much later, I probably would've missed it!


Good job capturing those photos! I di watch some of it but did not take any photos.-thanks.


We were clouded out, unfortunately, but since we caught last year's eclipse, I figure it all evens out in the wash. Thanks for sharing your lovely images!

Great to see the eclipse from your photos. I remembered it around six a.m. this morning (doh!) just a couple of YEARS before the next one. sigh!

The moon is so beautiful. Good birding to you!

Thanks Mike. I tried some handhelds with another camer as the light diminished but they didn't turn out. Keep me posted on yours and have fun showing off the eclipse to your little one.


Beautiful digiscopes! I took a few shots, too, primarily because I promised my daughter I'd show her the eclipse through pictures (it all happened past her bed time). Unfortunately my "digisocping camera" is shot, so I had to hand hold another camera with a mediocre lens, I'll find out later how well (or if) they turned out. Regardless, I'll show your pictures, too!
- Mike

  • Named Top 25 Bird Blog of 2015
    by Bel-Rea Vet Tech School

    Students at Bel-Rea Vet Tech School voted The Zen Birdfeeder as one of their Top 25 Bird Blogs of 2015. These students devote their lives to helping animals and find The Zen Birdfeeder blog to be a source of inspiration, especially to those students who focus their study on birds.


  • 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.
