The Zen Birdfeeder

Ellen, my groundhog said to say hey to Grover/Greta. That apple escape must've been memorable!
Barbara, I'm lucky that he didn't become a nuisance, as they definitely have the capacity to be.


Groundhogs have been drastically reduced in numbers here in Ontario by farmers. We used to see them all the time poking heads out of large burrows in hay fields. But not recently. Great shots of this amusing creature.


We have a resident groundhog, too: Grover (or Greta). I can watch him from inside the house, but he's easily spooked.

Grover seems to enjoy chowing down on the grasses that grow near our bird feeders. He also likes fruit. I was in the yard one day when I saw Grover out of the corner of my eye, racing across the lawn with a big green apple in his mouth!

  • 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.
