Window Bird Feeders

December 11th, 2010

Window bird feeders are a great way to enjoy birds up close! These lightweight bird feeders are designed to stick to your window, generally by using suction cups. My personal favorite is the Window Cafe. It is completely clear – even featuring a clear roof to protect both the seed and visiting birds from the rain. Below the hopper is a removable tray for the birds to feast. This feeder attracts all kinds of birds, including goldfinches, chickadees, and house finches.

One of the greatest features of this feeder is the quality construction. It is constructed entirely of unbreakable UV stabilized polycarbonate. In addition, the manufacturer offers a limited lifetime warranty. I highly recommend this feeder for those who want to get a little closer to the birds in their yard from the comfort of their own couch.

Squirrels in Action

March 16th, 2009

For many, squirrels are a nuisance.  They eat bird seed, rip food from your trees, and don’t even have the decency to clean up after themselves!  But, for the few of us who really watch, squirrels can be a joy – they’re certainly clever little guys.  Watch for yourself.

Fun Facts About Goldfinches

March 3rd, 2009

As spring approaches, Goldfinches have begun turning the distinctive gold color that they are famous for.  What better time to learn a little more about these wonderful birds!

- Goldfinches are sometimes referred to as wild canaries. They are actually in the finch family as their name suggest.

- They have an interesting flight call with four syllables that can be likened to “potato-chip.”

- They are common feeder visitors that prefer thistle (nyjer) and sunflowers. They are rather acrobatic, and often dip upside down feeding on weed seeds like coneflowers and sunflowers.

- Goldfinches will hang upside down to eat, but experiments with specially designed feeders have shown that they prefer to dine upright if possible.

- Goldfinches usually lay 5 pale-blue or greenish-blue eggs that will hatch in about 12 days. Babies will fledge about 12 days after that. An interesting side note is that the nest cleaning is ceased about a week after the babies hatch.

- Goldfinches don winter clothes: the dull-green coat of feathers grown each fall has an especially dense layer of soft, plumaceous feathers to provide extra insulation.

Bird Flying With Fish

September 6th, 2008

I recently found this picture on the web.  It was popular on a social networking site.  Pretty incredible to watch a bird carrying a fish like this.  The caption for the social networking site was “Higher! Higher!”  Somehow, I don’t think that is what the fish was thinking!  :)   Click here to take a look!
