I can't even count how many are at the feeders today and on the ground! Unbelievable! My husband was getting ready for work, glanced out the window and said, "Oh my gosh - I've never seen that many birds in one place at one time!" Need to get some more nyger seed today. They empty the feeder pretty quickly.

Kah Wai - thanks!
Ellen - smaller flocks lately; today "just" a couple dozen.


I'm envious. The most redpolls I've had at one time = 2!

Kah Wai

This is cool!

  • 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.
