The Zen Birdfeeder

Cathy - I did the same today. Heard jays, went out to check for a hawk, but didn't see anything.


Loved the blue jay link. We have a family of blue jays living around our yard this year. They regularly bring the juveniles with them to the feeders. The chickadees are hardly intimidated by them at all; the others that are, seem to know that the jays will soon fly off and leave them in piece.
I like the jays around because they are a warning system against the neighbors cat, who has been coming into my yard, lurking in my plantings and in the shrubs. When I'm in or around the house, if I hear the jays alarming, I either go out myself or let the dog out....


Excellent post! Two of the links are from Maine. Thanks for the mention!

  • 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.
