  • 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.

Elaine, too bad. :(
Good news here though, Bad Leg Chickadee is still around as of 2/24/14.

Elaine Snow

Unfortunately, we haven't seen him again after the snow.....

The Zen Birdfeeder

Good luck with your raggedy little bird, Elaine.
Susan, the good news is I saw my little bad-leg chickadee today so he's still hangin' in there!

Susan Fassett

That is breaking my heart. I hope it is a temporary injury. Keep your bark butter and suet feeders full also.

Elaine Sow

We have three inches of snow in Birmingham and we've had a little bird with no tail and missing an eye hanging around at our back door, almost like he wants to come in. I can't even tell what he is. He flies, and eats at the feeder, but like you, I know his chances aren't good. It makes me sad. I have a sweet picture of him but can't put it here.

Thanks Linda!


Awwww.....poor sweetie. Lovely photos.
