Judy, that's great considering the number of birders that pass through BSBO. I'm glad to help spread the word about any location where you can buy Birds & Beans!


Just wanted to share some info and give a little plug for one of my favorite organizations, BSBO...BSBO is a retailer of bird-friendly coffee and a real champion for all birds in general!

Jane H., I hope you make the switch to certified Bird-friendly coffee!! Check the Smithsonian site for stores near you that carry it.

Thank you, thank you for this article. I too have been reluctant to switch to the Keurig system because of the waste issue. Glad to know about the little gadget.
Also I will be checking on the origin of coffee sold by my local grocery store. It's some kind of free market coffee but I will push for Smithsonian!

  • 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.
