I love this blog and happy to see you back writing again Zen. I agree with what you said in the post and it's very insightful, I actually learned a couple of new things. (Never too old to learn eh, as I'm pushing 62 right now)
I'm glad you're back up and running, I was also using the feather magazine as a resource in the meantime they also had a pretty good article about bird food and feeding wild birds.
However, they didn't really touch on the intricacies that are oh so helpful like you have.
Much appreciated, sending love from your long term reader.
P.S: These are the resources I mentioned:


I'm hearing red-winged blackbirds in Princetown. I don't ever recall hearing them in the fall before. Any idea what's going on?

  • 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.
