I live in Alaska and got to wondering about this this morning. Thanks for answering my question. WOW! Amazing that little chickadees survive at -40°.


For the last three months, every evening at dusk, a Wren comes to sleep in a large lantern on our patio. It doesn't bother it to have the yellow "bug light" on. It missed about a week and I was pleased when it retuned. It comes out at dawn, sits on the lattic work and sings, then flys away just to return at dusk. We live on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi.


I love this. I live on a high density tree area where squirrels and birds abound. I may start bringing feeders in at night so squirrels don't empty them out'. !! We are generally outside during day when birds will come but not squirrels thanks

  • 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.
