Talked to a friend in Galway who told me she had red winged blackbirds back end of January?!

You are so right about snow bringing out the birds. Our urban yard has been empty since winter began. This morning an explosion - robins, cardinals, downy woodpeckers, titmice, grackles, and starlings, stripping the last wild grapes off the vines and mobbing the pond that we keep open with a pond heater. We ditched breakfast and just watched them.

Kathiesbirds - is 2/29 earlier than normal? I just saw my first red-winged, well before "normal" (whatever THAT is!!)


I saw my first red-wings at the bog on Feb. 29th this year! The grackles have returned as well, but I have been seeing robins around town all winter, though rarely in my yard.

  • 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.
