I love your posts! I “serve” safflower, finch mix and nectar and orange halfs in suet cages. I also serve peanuts though not all the time. I have fewer hummers this year. 😞. I had an orchard oriole and Baltimore pair but havent seen them since early spring. I have house finches and goldfinch. House (or purple- cant tell difference) love my fountain bird bath. Woodpeckers love the nuts and orange. I have all the ones you mention. I have a cardinal pair visit off and on. I usually have more. The wrens took over at least one bird house displacing the chickadees. Mourning doves nest in my gutter and have fledged. Not seeing much of them in last few days. Robins nest under our deck and are on there second brood. Our back yard is their dinner table- so fun to watch it all unfold.

  • 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.
