We can show you how to turn your yard into a birdfeeding habitat that brings song, color and life to your home.
Water (or the lack thereof) can be deadly serious for birds. Birds must be ready to fly at all times, and bathing is a critical part of feather maintenance and staying in top-flight condition. Whether they are feeder visitors or not, birds need water. Offering a dependable source of water is probably the simplest and most important step you can take to greatly increase the variety of birds in your yard.
Water is also vitally important when it's extremely hot and a bird's ability to regulate its body temperature can become stressed. Birds do not sweat and must remove excess body heat through their respiratory system. So when temperatures rise, a bird's respiration rate increases, sometimes to the point that it can be seen panting like a dog. This activity dehydrates birds and increases their need for a reliable source of water to replace lost fluids.
Thank You Lynn Oliphant & Rhonda Shewfelt for a close encounter of the falcon kind. Over 35 people came to meet Peregrine falcons and a Prairie Falcon. We'll let everyone know in Sep. when you can see the falcons hunt.
Windows are everywhere: in our homes, offices, stores, cottages...everywhere. Bird Collisions with windows is a leading cause of bird death across North America. Birds cannot see glass. They see a reflection of their habitat (trees, bushes, water, sky) in windows but they cannot see the glass.FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program)works to safeguard migratory birds in the urban environment through education, policy development, research, rescue and rehabilitation. They have an excellent website to help everyone help save birds.
NOTE: If you'd like to share your photos of birds please do so on ourFacebookor bring them into the store for our bulletin board.
