Sitting Outside Under a Tree

July 8th, 2008

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately sitting under the trees in my backyard. The weather has been perfect – the breeze is blowing; the sun is shinning. Spending time with friends in the shade of our Magnolia tree, I’ve watched as birds have come and gone, sampling sunflower seeds and dining on Nyjer.

Looking up through the canopy at the waiting birds, who will soon swoop down to my feeder, I notice the spots on the belly of a finch. A dove and a bright male house finch dine peacefully next to each other. Strange that these birds could so easily coexist, when just yesterday I watched two female house finches fighting for dominance at my feeder.

My friends have sat under this very same Magnolia tree, with branches and vines from smaller trees dotting the sky, laughing and talking. How nice it is to spend time outside with nothing in particular to do.

Shop By Bird Section & Backyard Flowers and Citrus

April 29th, 2008

Despite my blog absence, I’ve been very busy over the past couple of weeks! Our store just launched a new “Shop By Bird” section. This makes it easy to get all the information you need about the birds you love, and shop for these birds and for yourself. We have six sections, Bluebirds, Cardinals, Clinging Birds, Goldfinches, Hummingbirds, and Orioles. Each bird section has a ton of information available, an informative video, and products categorized by bird for easy shopping. This is a great new feature of our web site, and I’m sure that our customers, blog readers, and other bird lovers will enjoy it! Click here to check it out! If you’re just interested in the information, not our products, click this link instead.

Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten some great shots of my yard. As spring began, my yard bloomed! It is so nice to have some flowers back.

And the citrus came back! Oranges, Lemons, and Limes!
