Great post! Our birdfeeders were similarly busy during the storm.


Hi Nancy! Glad to see you also weathered the storm okay. We never lost power here but so many others did. I, too, took down one set of feeders but left one up along with suet and I also was amazed to see the birds continue to visit during the storm. As soon as the winds and rain died down in the afternoon I put my finch feeder and tube feeder back up and the birds immediately swamped them! Now, everything is back to normal and I did not get any unusual birds blown in from the storm.


Wow! Glad to hear you're safe and sound. Interesting report on the birds and how you fed them through it all.

  • 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.
