Gulf Coast Ribbon Snake By Bird Stream

I saw some shedded snake skin in my bird stream today.  After looking around for just a bit, I saw who the skin belonged to.  It’s a Gulf Coast Ribbon Snake.  Really a beautiful snake as far as snakes go.  I just took some pictures and left it alone.  It might eat a few lizards […]

It’s So Hot Owls Are Bathing In My Bird Stream

So I’m sitting here watching my favorite late night TV show.  It’s actually not a show, it’s my TV and the 8 real time cameras hooked up outside that I was watching. It’s midnight, so I’m getting ready to go to bed, and suddenly I see this “thing” sitting on one of the rocks of […]

Goldfinches Are Still Around In Beautiful Plumage

Normally during this time of year the Goldfinches have moved on from my backyard, but not this year.  Not only do I finally get to see them in their beautiful yellow plumage, but I frequently see them drinking out of my disappearing bird stream.

Spring Is In The Air With Birds, Butterflies, and Bees

I’ve got lots of news to share (especially since it’s been so long since I have posted), but only 1 picture. Let me start with what all is occurring in the backyard. The Monarch Butterflies have arrived, but unfortunately I’ve only seen 1-2. The Ruby Throated Hummingbirds just arrived today (March 19).  There is one […]

Doves, Cardinals, and Hummingbirds In The Birdstream

The disappearing bird stream I built is really starting to attract some visitors.  In these 4 video clips, you’ll see several Cardinals taking a bird bath, some Eurasian Collared Doves bathing and drinking, and at the end, if you look towards the back of the video where the Hummingbird feeder is located, you’ll see a […]

Bluejays In The Birdstream And Fledgling Learns To Take A Bath

Here’s another new video taken with my new Bushnell Trophy cam.  It’s a 2.5 minute video, but it’s really funny.  You’ll see this family of Bluejays visit the bird stream to take a bath and get a drink of water.  Apparently, one of the Bluejays is quite young, and isn’t exactly sure what to do […]

Late Night Raccoon Visits The Birdstream

I haven’t uploaded many videos lately so I thought I’d get back to that.  There’s also a different reason.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I have several cameras positioned throughout the backyard capturing whatever wildlife may appear.  On some of my cameras, I capture the video in real time […]

Red Shouldered Hawk Visits The Bird Stream

This is a first.  I was reviewing my videos that were taken automatically with my BirdCam that is pointing towards the disappearing bird stream.  I noticed a rather large bird sitting in the stream.  After reviewing the 3 short clips, I fired off an email to my friend Greg Lavaty to get confirmation about what […]

CottonMouth Snake In Bird Stream

Now they it’s getting warmer and water getting more scarce, my disappearing bird stream is bustling in activity.  Many birds are drinking and bathing in the stream, a raccoon comes out at night to drink, I’ve seen a few mice drop by, and the other day, a Western Cottonmouth snake. Normally I don’t like to […]

Chestnut Sided Warbler And Rose Breasted Grosbeak

Two birds I don’t often see in the backyard.  Actually one of them I’ve never seen in the backyard. The first bird was a Chestnut Sided Warbler. I didn’t think I’d ever seen one in the backyard before, but I noticed I had a post on May 21st from last year that referenced this bird.  […]

Do The Birds Like The Birdstream? Take A Look

So I spend all this money on 8 different cameras, and what camera gives me the best videos of the birds in the bird stream?  The Wingscapes Birdcam.  Oh well. The Doves must really like it.  You’ll see 3 Doves all together drinking and then splashing water on one another.  If you watch the video […]
