  • 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.

Chris - thanks much.
Francia - what a wonderful thing to say. Comments like that make this blog easy to keep up! Thank you so much.


Please, please don't stop doing this wonderful job. You always have something new. Thank's a lot.


Incredibly lucky to have Pileated Woodpeckers. Truly amazing. Hairy and Downies are common...and an occasional Red Headed also.

We will have our winter suet ready just in case.

Lana - Buntings are so beautiful!
LNMP - See ya soon?
JenZnewlife - that sounds like a great idea! Maybe one of our customers will try. I'll let you know.


Have you tried bananas? Just a thought. I have lineated woodpeckers who love eating from my banana racks.


I'll have to come up to WBU and take a look - a male Pileated Woodpecker has been visiting, but hasn't shown any interest in our "regular" suet feeder.


Unfortunately we haven't seen pileateds here in a while now. On the plus side, however, the indigo buntings are arriving! :)
