Titmouse And Chickadees Love Mealworms and Bird Baths

The Bluebirds have a little competition this year for mealworms. The Tufted Titmouse and Carolina Chickadees also love them.  The Chickadees go a step further in that they LOVE to bathe in the water dish I have out by the feeder. The literally will sit in the small bowl of water to take a bath.  […]

Backyard Birds At Feeding Time Video

I created a small video collage of some of the backyard birds I have at feeding time.  Feeding time is around 6 p.m., where I fill the bird feeder with Black Oil Sunflower Seed, sprinkle some Nut and Berry Seed, and put out a few mealworms. While I have no idea where some of these […]

Disappearing Bird Stream Construction Stage Three

I’m now on stage 3 of my disappearing bird stream.  I’ve finished most of the actual layout.  I still need to mortar the rocks, get a ton of mulch for the whole area, and do some more landscaping. I had delivered 3000 pounds of moss rock, and smaller amounts of river pebbles and pond rock […]

Day 14 For Carolina Chickadee Babies

When Leecy got home today all of the baby Carolina Chickadees were gone.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is I’m a total idiot.  I’ve had that Wingscapes BirdCam trained on the nest for 14 days now.  I haven’t bothered checking the BirdCam the last couple of days since I could see the birds […]

I […]

Before I share a picture and a video I have a disclaimer.  I really need a new video camera.  The one […]

I just checked some of our Milkweed plants tonight, and many of them are covered in Monarch Caterpillars.  The picture below is just one plant (and not […]

Two Carolina Chickadees In Love

I got a few lucky shots this afternoon.  The Carolina Chickadees, being very social birds, were making all kinds of chattering noises in the backyard.  I was fortunate to have my camera with me when the male (I’m assuming it’s the male) brings this little piece of grass to the female Chickadee for her nest. […]

Six Eggs In Carolina Chickadee Nest

Well we have some babies now, not babies I guess, but eggs.  The Carolina Chickadee that I’ve been talking about has a nice nest with 6 eggs in there.  While she was out feeding or foraging for nesting material, I took the time to have a little peek inside the nest box. The picture was […]
