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.

Joyce, you just proved what we always say: clean feeders and fresh food can make a difference! Thanks for sharing.
Larry, nice to hear from you again. Good luck looking for those grouse.
Arthur, well share them back up here!!
Cecil, good luck!

Nice to know this about the suet. I'm hoping to get a higher count than ever because I've just installed the Squirrel Buster and now those nasty squirrels will keep away!

Arthur in the Garden

Wow! We have lots of Winter visitors here in Raleigh, North Carolina!

Larry

Seeing your grouse photo made me realize something.I found a grouse on the ground in the Fall up in Vermont and it seemed to vanish.I was looking for it on the ground but I wonder if it flew into a tree? Nice photo anyhow. I'm glad that people such as yourself enjoy keeping bird data. I'm not too patient when it comes to that.

I just told you that I haven't seen any woodpeckers, so I changed my suet and within an hour, I just saw a female downy on the suet!

Joyce Conley

I just changed my suet feeder because I have not seen any woodpeckers, recently, thinking maybe the suet in the feeder wasn't any good. Good to know that I'm not the only one.
