I've been interested in establishing a Purple Martin colony on my property for some time. This year, I'm growing the gourds to make houses, with the intent of drying and preparing them this winter.I…Continue

Keeping Wasps OUT Of Your Hummingbird Solution

Has anybody tried this?  A ranger lady at Lake Eufala Park (Oklahoma) assured my wife and me that if we spray around our hummingbird feeders with Pam cooking spray, that deters wasps.  Worth a try!Continue

I'm currently in Australia and here is a Kookaburra I caught mid flight in Newcastle, NSW.

Bird Watching, is something I've always been interested in. Does anyone have any tips for a beginner

Bluebirds have laid their first brood of the year.  In a couple weeks hopefully we see 5 healthy babies.

Roberto, that is awesome.  Spending that time with you son and passing on the enjoyment of nature is incredible.

Built this platform feeder over the weekend.   The bluebirds love it.  It will need to be refilled today.

Thanks Roberto.  What I was getting at is what kind of feeder do you use?  What do you put the meal worms in?  But, I think I found what I need at a landscaping place in N.C. over the weekend.  The birds enter in and eat while inside.

Thanks.  Those hummingbirds were everywhere.

Snapped this pic out in Colorado back in June.  Broad-Tail Hummingbird feeding at the nectar feeder.

Any of you guys feeding bluebirds?  What feeder do you use?

Davis,

What did you fashion to keep the elements out of the jars?

After doing some research through my local Audubon chapter, I found that there's a really good birding location in my own backyard at our local reservoirs. I had planned on heading out today and walking around, but it's pouring down rain.
