The Zen Birdfeeder

Amy - thanks much, that means alot to me. Their time as nestlings is amazing, isn't it?
Kathie - fascinating stuff about the little chickadees!
Barbara - winter flocks are forming so there are lots of chickadees around with nutties and titmice. Thanks for stopping in again.


The chickadees here at my feeder in Ontario hung around all summer and seem to be adding to the group this fall - even though we've had spectacular weather lately and not bothered much by Irene where I live.

Hopefully all of us get to see our share of birds this winter... crossing my fingers that your purple finches return Nancy - fascinating what you found out about the numbers for the wee black caps...


Those are amazing numbers!


I always enjoy these posts, Nancy. Wow, it certainly doesn't take long to make a chickadee!

  • 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.
