Barbara - thanks, I'll keep you posted! Good to hear they're up along the lake too.
Elaine - keep fighting to save that locust tree, as long as it won't cause damage or injury!

I have several who visit my front yard at my house on Lookout Mtn. They even come and stand on the wide rail of the front porch to get seed and suet while we are five feet away! They nest in a damaged Black Locust tree. My neighbor wants to help us cut it down, but I want to leave it for the birds. He's a great guy, but I don't think he gets my logic on that.


Great photos of your red-bellies Nancy - I have been fortunate in having them around in both the more northerly Valley home and here near Lake Ontario - they love the suet here too and also take sunflower seeds from the larger feeder near a hydro pole. I've not been able to get photos - so really appreciate yours! Hope he finds a female and they nest nearby.

  • 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.
