I used to always do FeederWatch (I got my first Redpolls during an invasion year ticking off species.) But alas, I moved and now have bears. So I have to wait until they go down before I can start to feed the birds. Bummer.

The Zen Birdfeeder

Vickie - You're welcome on the PFW info. If you haven't signed up, it's not too late!
Larry - The hairy and nuthatch are pretty much regulars. The purplies aren't around much anymore in the winter so I was glad to see this one male.


Hairy Woodpecker, Purple Finch, and red-breasted Nuthatch.-Sounds like you're having pretty good success!


Great report. Loved the squirrel and the jay together! Thanks for including more info about FeederWatch. Also enjoyed the inspiration from Sibley in previous post. I'm a neophyte compared to many but enjoy trying to ID what I find.

  • 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.
