  • 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.

Hello All - I am snowed in, out of wild bird seed, have been making pancakes & have empied my freezer of anything edible for them. I spend about $40- a week in the winter, when snow is on the ground. Have used up all my gift cards, etc. These little ones are very impt. to me. I don't feed them in the Spring, Summer or Fall... I have Rasberries & other foods on my property, they are a joy to watch, but cant wait for Spring.


I saw acorn woodpeckers in Arizona. They were definitely one of my favorite birds of the trip - little clowns!

Ellen, I've never seen an acorn but the images of them and their granaries are amazing!! Have you seen them in person?


Although they are not in our area, Acorn Woodpeckers are masters of caching. They will store thousands of acorns, often in a single tree!

Just learned something new today. Thank you:)
