Nancy-Elizabeth, the birdhouse pictured is a recycled Eastern Bluebird house that our chickadees chose to nest in. It is available online at http://shop.wbu.com/p/wbu-ecotough-eastern-bluebird-nesting-box?os=354

Looks like a fascinating and obviously well-liked birdhouse.Where would that be available?

Daniel LaFrance

Wonderful ending to what has been a great experience for you and us readers.

Congrats Grandma!


Great pictures! I love watching those young birds as they go from awkward "first flight" to finesse their landing skills.

Diana Little

Thanks so much. With your pics I can I identify the fledglings in our yard. I do not know where the nest is.
I can also tell the difference in their vocalizations.
Again thanks


Oh, that last shot. Best. baby bird. photo. EVER.

Hands-down winner for adorableness, baby-bird lips and chickadee preciousness. Thanks so much for the updates, and for looking out for these youngsters!!

  • 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.
