Nancy- I am looking to purchase some bird feeders for my father for Christmas. He loves to watch birds and identify which ones have visited our home in northern New York. Do you have any suggestions as to which bird feeders I should look to purchase?

Ashley, you might not believe this but Lizzie has a "vending machine" of sorts. A machine that dispenses her dry food in 1/4 cup quantities twice a day. When she was smaller, she could reach up in the chute and "self-dispense" but as her legs got longer, she lost that ability!


Great picture. Too bad there isnt a vending machine for pet food

Bev - thanks for visiting and commenting on this older post. It made me smile to revisit it myself!

This was cute! We love to attract hummingbirds too! No cats, but aren't they fun to watch?

Mary Lou - Wouldn't that be cool if we could train them to fill the feeders?

Mary Lou

Aww, she's just waving goodbye to the little hummer. Good girl Lizzie! Don't forget to put fresh food out and she'll come back to see you again.

  • 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.
