Bird Condos for Rent – Excavation Continues

Chickadees continue to move into cavities in the snag and I welcome them. In the meantime, excavation continues thanks to the Northern Flicker. Click on pictures in the gallery below to enlarge them. The rapid rat-a-tat-tat of the pecking resounds throughout the neighborhood, while… Continue Reading “Bird Condos for Rent – Excavation Continues”

Happy Home in the Snag!

I was SO thrilled to see a chestnut-backed chickadee building a nest in the snag we left standing for this very purpose! The cavity is under the highest bare branch near the top of the tree. This mama was singing while busily preparing the… Continue Reading “Happy Home in the Snag!”

Gardening is for the Birds

I love gardening and I love birds and the two go hand in hand. At our last home in Seattle, our yard was a Certified Wildlife Habitat, which means it was wildlife friendly; we planted native shrubs and trees, had water sources, and feeders.… Continue Reading “Gardening is for the Birds”

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

My favorite Little Backyard Birds

Backyard Birds

I never get tired of watching the birds in my backyard – especially the chickadees and the nuthatches – as they flitter about the trees and drop by for a drink and a bath. The chickadees are friendly and unafraid.  I love to hear… Continue Reading “Backyard Birds”

My Little Backyard Chickadees

In the heat of the day I turned on the stream and sat under the shade of the Douglas Firs. It wasn’t long before I heard the chickadees calling to one another, flying overhead, finally daring to stop by the precious flowing water. We… Continue Reading “My Little Backyard Chickadees”

End of a Hot Summer Day

Nearing the end of another hot, dry, summer day, with temperatures soaring and no rain in sight, skies otherworldly, milky and dim from the forest fires north in British Columbia, all is well in the backyard, where I turn on the stream and the… Continue Reading “End of a Hot Summer Day”
