Gallicissa - thanks much and I'm glad it gave you a chuckle.


I laughed out reading this one. What a perfect ad. You obviously are good at many trades!

Norie - welcome and thanks for stopping in and commenting. I'll stop by soon!


What a lovely blog focus! Just read about this post on http://pinguinus.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/summertime/
and found that post from The Drinking Bird post: http://thedrinkingbird.blogspot.com/2008/06/new-smithsonian-field-guide-to-birds.html.

Was thinking about how delightful the interface with backyard birds. (Oh and other creatures. I've got to get a photo of a moth that looks like a dark wood chip, wonder if I missed it.) I have water out there for them, and it's just wonderful seeing them drink, even the squirrels, in the heat of this North Carolina June.

My latest on backyard birds is this post with photos about baby bluebirds: http://roundaboutapex.blogspot.com/2008/06/young-blue-birds-high-in-tree-waiting.html

I look forward to reading more,and will add you to my iGoogle for quick checking!

Thanks to everyone for their support of my Mr. Oriole. He was still singing away today. I hope he isn't "lookin' for love in all the wrong places"!


HAHA! Beautiful photos, as usual. I've enjoyed this fellow's singing for the past many mornings, and got wonderful glimpses of him in the trees behind my house on Sunday. Just gorgeous! I have never had one here in the eleven years we've been here. Birding IS just like a box of chocolates!


We have a pair with a nest in our White Birch tree hanging over the driveway, first time I can remember. I will post some photos on our blog soon.


Hilarious and well done!! Definitely added a smile to my day :)


Great shots. I wish I had gotten better shots of the one who has been visiting here. Maybe if I'm lucky he'll stick around awhile and I'll come thru. Meanwhile, beautiful post!


Love the personal ad! "No cowbirds need apply" :)


Don't you just love their song. Hope your little feller finds a mate soon.


He is a handsome fellow and I wish him luck! definitely a favorite bird of mine.


How funny and love your title! Hope your male finds a lady!

  • 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.
