Thanks Boise.


This is my first time at your blog and I've really enjoyed looking around. I will come back again in the future to check out some of the other articles.

Ellen, sounds busy at your house with some special visitors too (like your kinglet and creeper!)


We've had a ton of finches, too - primarily American Goldfinches and (to a lesser extent) House Finches. It's been quite noisy out there, in a good way! And we did have a pair of Purple Finches at the feeders the other day. I wish they'd stick around.

  • 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.
