Delbenson, thanks for your thumbs up. I like that last one too - anytime you can capture wings in action! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for commenting. Hope to see you frequently!


Cute little bathing birds! I love the images. They are stunning. I love the last image.

Margaret, thanks! It was nice to see you the other day.


That is cute, especially the third --looks like he's dunking for apples!

Ellen - oh my, I knew that and still typed white-throated!!! Thanks for letting me know.
Jan - May is an amazing bird month, you're right there!

We've got Baltimore Orioles, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and Hummingbirds at our porch feeder this week. Love May! That's probably why my second Birder Murder Mystery is my favorite so far - it's filled with the birds of May.


Great images! A couple of weeks ago, I was able to watch a half-dozen (!) Yellow-Rumped Warblers bathing together.

Isn't the White-Throated Sparrow in the video actually a White-Crowned Sparrow??

  • 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.
