Lep, interesting! I'll have to give that a try!


I have also found that they like watermelon!

Aviary, thanks much. I appreciate you visiting the blog and for leaving a nice comment!


They are really cute. Thank for the lovely share.

Sue, that Bark Butter is amazing stuff. 115 bird species have eaten it, even those you don't think of as being suet eaters. So cool! Thanks for the report.

My catbird pair (whom I first spotted on the 10th) are devouring bark butter and now suet. ~ Sue

  • 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.
