The Zen Birdfeeder

Lana - rain-soaked birds are a sight! I think there are LOTS of molting jays all over from what I'm seeing on search engines!
Veery - thanks much. I think the finch mohawk was my favorite too.
Alan & Toni - get me out in the rain and I look like that too. Thanks for visiting!
Birdfreak - nest head...more fitting than bed head! :)
Vic - then you should vote for the jay! Thanks for visiting.


I love all of these birds but I cannot vote on the bad hair issue since I'm losing all mine! Very nice site.


My vote is for the Chickadee... looks like "nest head" to me :)


I vote for the chipping sparrow


I'll have to vote for the flat hairdo of the Chipping Sparrow.


My vote definately goes to the disheveled Purple Finch. Great photos!!


The 1st & last shots are sooo pathetic looking! Some of our jays are molting these days, too. I'm surprised sometimes that birds function as well as they do in the rain--particularly the smaller guys (chickadees, etc.)

  • 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.
