We can show you how to turn your yard into a birdfeeding habitat that brings song, color and life to your home.

Out with the Old, in with the New

Right now, many birds are beginning a transformation, losing and replacing their feathers in a process known as molting. This complicated process requires a lot of energy.  Feathers are made of more than 90% protein, primarily keratins, so every molting bird needs extra proteins to grow strong feathers for proper flight and effective insulation. You can offer high-protein bird foods such as peanuts, Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter®, suet and mealworms, to ensure that your birds have a reliable source of protein to help them with molting. Many species are also preparing to migrate and need to build extra body weight for the journey.

Nashville Warbler deadWindows 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.
