The Zen Birdfeeder

BMM - birds can be such an inspiration, can't they?
Kathie - keep watching! Do you usually have them in the winter?
Eileen - keep us posted, ok?


Great capture, I am looking forward to seeing my first Junco of the season.


Nancy, I saw my first one of the season at the bog last week, but have not seen one since.


Saw my first junco this morning. It's fun to see the birds while I'm actually writing about them - my fifth Birder Murder takes place in October, so I'm taking notes while I watch my birdfeeders.

  • 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.
