We sure are enjoying all the new birdhouses that I built and put up earlier this Spring. And so are the birds! The little babies in this house are about ready to fly away and start their own adventures!

Bird houses for Spring!

With Spring right around the corner, I am starting to mass produce birdhouses in my woodshop. I like this particular model, in that the side swings out for easy cleaning. Will be putting up several of these on the property once they are painted and ready to go!

Checking out the birdhouse

I put up a new birdhouse on the property (with a cam right along beside it, of course) and got this picture on the first day! No one has moved into the bird house (that I know of) but there were several birds checking it out. This particular one spent quite a bit of time flying around the birdhouse and landed on the front perch several times to give it a closer look!

I have a webcam right near the entrance of a birdhouse on our garden shed and, quite often, get some rather remarkable pictures. Here's one from last weekend! :)

I don't like Stellar Jays - they are obnoxious, loud and they chase the other birds from the bird feeders. But I will readily admit that they are very pretty - and every now and then, I get a good pic of one. This photo was snapped by one of our home security cams ...

Don't forget about your wild birds in the winter

Birds at bird feeder

Many people, especially in colder/wetter climates, take down their bird feeders during fall and don't put them back out until Spring. But there are probably hundreds of birds in your area that still need to eat! Did you know that hummingbirds will visit your feeder all winter long? Just be sure to keep the food fresh! Here, my wife, Linda, got a photo of the activity on one of our black-oil sunflower seed feeders...
