Mike, I agree! Water is necessary for all living things and a great way to attract birds and other wildlife.

I HAVE A SMALL CONSERVATION AT BACK YARD ! WITH SEVERAL MOURNING DOVES . IF YOU WANT TO FEED BIRDS + SMALL MAMMALS,ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS ( YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS TRY TO HAVE CLEAN WATER)

Dawn - you're right, most of us take them for granted but they do have their "interesting" features!

Thanks for the great informative post on a bird most of us take for granted.

ATTENTION

  • 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.

ACCEPTANCE

  • 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.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • 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.
