ATTENTION

  • 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.

ACCEPTANCE

  • 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.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • 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.

Ellen, and now you have 2 out of 3. Good luck on the Evening Grosbeak!
Melissa, let us know what passes through in the west, okay?
Miranda, glad you're enjoying the Blue Jays. Ours are busy busy busy!
Raymond, not sure if the siskins are moving through or here to stay. ONly time will tell.

I had very busy late summer, and so far fall is too. Siskins up to 50+ already, and a dozen purple finches. Have'nt seen siskins liek this ince the great siskin outbreak of a few years ago

I don't know all my birds, but I do know Blue Jays, and we've had them here for the past 2-3 weeks. There were three here one day for several hours, accompanied by a crow. After that I saw only two at a time, yesterday one. We always had them at our feeders in Vermont, along with flocks of Evening Grosbeaks, so why are they such a rare sight here? I guess I took them for granted, because I can't take my eyes off them now.

Melissa

I certainly hope to see some of these irruptions out west as well! I don't have any redpolls on my life list, and I'm hoping to get one this year. Thanks for the encouragement!

Ellen

Great timing, as I recently cleaned and refilled all of my bird feeders. I had a Red-Breasted Nuthatch visit this morning. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for Pine Siskins and Evening Grosbeaks!
