Jonathan, 2 seconds is FANTASTIC! Watch tomorrow's post about how long they took to find my latest feeder. The bad news is that redpolls aren't expected this winter, though we think there's a good chance the siskins will be here.

It took chickadees 2 seconds to start feasting on my set up! Tufted titmice, blue jays, juncos, finches, cardinals and woodpeckers followed suit within a few hours! If this initial response is any indication of the activity I'll see in the coming weeks, I am ecstatic! I'm hoping to see a flock of common redpolls and siskins feeding at the nijer feeders in January/February.

Eileen, some birds DO love peanuts!
Renee, glad your birdies are back. Mine are a little slow right now.


Looks like a great new feeder, the birds do love the peanuts. It wouldn't take long to find this new feeder.


I am excited that last weekend, birds returned to my feeder! I had thought they abandoned me. There was quite a flurry of activity for a few days. Thanks for telling me to wait and watch before giving up.

  • Named Top 25 Bird Blog of 2015
    by Bel-Rea Vet Tech School

    Students at Bel-Rea Vet Tech School voted The Zen Birdfeeder as one of their Top 25 Bird Blogs of 2015. These students devote their lives to helping animals and find The Zen Birdfeeder blog to be a source of inspiration, especially to those students who focus their study on birds.


  • 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.
