Shelley - they are nice to photograph because they sit still! Thanks for your comment.
LNMP - I use the Side Dish as a sort of petri dish - mostly mealworms (keep trying on those - when the chickadees and titmice find them, they'll go fast!), but I also try different fruits in them. The picture in this post had cantaloupe pulp in it with no takers :(
If you stop in the store, ask for me and introduce yourself!
Thanks for your comments today and always.


Nice pictures! We've had Rose-breasted Grosbeaks all season, but they haven't been any more numerous than usual. In fact, I haven't seen any young ones (yet) this year. I may have blown it when I was out of seed for about a week. :(

Love that rain guard... I may have to venture up to WBU and get one. What do you offer in your side dish? (I tried filling one with mealworms once, but no one was interested.)


Grosbeaks are a favorite of mine - they photograph so well and are so cheerful!

  • 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.
