Not a feeder tip - but I am seeing lots of Rough-Legged Hawks this winter, on telephone poles, as I drive to the next town for work 2X a week.
They are impressive!!!

a feeder tip from mary ann Butler,Hope Maine.I hang feeders from cables and pulley devices.When they need filling,just release the cable and lower the feeders.Then I'll raise them to a height out of reach of most ground predators.

We've been keeping the feeders full. With the snow on the ground (and more to come tonight it seems).

I've enjoyed being able to sit back and watch all these birds at the feeders.

We have 5 cardinals the other day, and tons of other birds (wish I could recognize more)

Yes, the raccoons were bad here this year too. My daughter in law has a fox living right out her back door practically. She sees him/her in the daytime as well.

The birds are eating me out of house and home - I love it!

My daughter had a fox come and take one of her chickens in broad daylight last month!

It's cold and my feeders are getting lots of traffic. I'm filling everyday. A chickadee followed me to the mailbox yesterday to remind me to fill the feeder. I love those cheery little birds!

I heard a strnge call last night before dark and saw the bird flying but it was too far away to make out what kind it was?It was pretty large.A couple nights ago my dd had something kill and half eat one of her ducks and I thought it might have been an owl.The next night sure enough around dark my gd went out to water them and there was a big owl that took off out of a large pine close by the pen.She will have to put up a wire top on the pen the rest of the ducks must have made it inside the house before it could get them.The owls are really bad here I have lost pets through the years and suspect them!

They may take a few days sometimes it seems like mine do.Sometimes I dont notice them for a while either.The cover of the new B and B is just beautiful isnt it!I wish we had cardinals here!!!
Here is a birdfeeder idea from B and B .I recieved one of these from my sister last year and the birds really LOVE it!She made it in a few min and it has provided me with lots of bird entertainment! emoticon
Suet Log Feeder --- To make this gift ,all you need are a short log and a drill and about 5 min of time.drill large holes in the log on all sides it can come with a jar of peanut butter for filling the holes with or if you make it for yourself just fill holes with any peanut butter and put a screw hanger on the top for hanging in the trees or from a shepards hook.Great gift for the bird lovers on your list.You can cut a short log in half as well and just drill holes on the one side . I have used mine all winter and it works just great boy do I go thru the peanut butter! emoticon

Saw those tips in my B and B this month. I really liked the crock pot idea and the corn cob one.

Still dealing with the squirrels. I'm going to try sprinkling cayenne pepper on my suet cakes and put them out there. I'll let you know if it works.

An ear of dryed corn attached to a board or tree limb is an inexpensive way to feed birds like blue jays.After the birds have eaten all the kernals,spread peanut butter on the cob and roll it in birdseed for an extra winter treat! emoticon

emoticon Ssve money in your backyard with these ideas from Birds and Blooms mag.Milk Jugs--some ideas for uses.
1.Cut them into strips to make plant markers.
2.Use them as collars to keep cutworms from destroying young plants.
3.Make a simple watering can.Just cut a small hole in one corner on bottom and set it next to a plant.The water slowly seeps out.
4.Cut a hole in the side and make it into a bird feeder.
5.Slide it over your bird feeder pole as a squirrel baffle.
6.Cut off the bottom and one side up to the handle for a scoop for birdseed or potting soil. emoticon

I went on a run yesterday and saw some bluebirds. It so felt like spring out. Still seeing the juncos at my feeders though.

The squirrel problem is still with me. I'm wanting to put out suet, but the little squirrels are eating it in less than a day:(

We got the cat - hoping he'll deal with them.

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup of beef suet
6 cups of cornmeal
Melt beef suet in pan over low heat.Then add the peanut butter and cornmeal.Mix together . Spoon the mixture into paper lined cupcake or muffin tins and allow cakes to cool.
When hardened , remove from the tins and store in the freezer until needed.You could also add raisins, sunflower seeds, rolled oats or chopped apples to your bird cake mix.Woodpeckers, chickadees and nuthatches are a few of the birds you could attract. emoticon

That is why when you have an outdoor kitty they say if you care about birds, you should put collars with bells on them. I did when we had cats that went out.

I was just going to say that the only birds that I have seen in quite awhile around where we live besides starlings are scissor tailed fly-catchers on highwires.

I still have my Mother to ask questions on her side of the family, and 2 Aunts that might be able to help on the other side. My father lives in Australia so he is hard

We live in Southwest MO, Jasper County, Joplin. The Scissor Tailed Flycatcher is OK state Bird. This year on the highwires alont the edge of town there are scissor tailed flycatchers everywhere, it seems to me. In town you can see pigeons, we have a couple of cardinals, robins, blue jays in our yard and some geese live close by. The scissor tailed flycatchers are the birds that I have seen the most of this year!

Face book is so much fun . AND it is easy I am having more amd more trouble with SP every day.Also I seem to be addicted to trying to get at least 100 points per day and seem to waste A LOT of time .They almost never add new articles or polls so it is harder to do. I must say I am losing interest in this site. I think we should all go to face book LOL
Thanks for the add

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Sherrie the baby bird is soooo cute! I saw our loon in the dd pond last week when I released my mallard ducks there I think it was on wed.It left for another body of water when she released the 3 tame geese there on Sat.I am sure it was only there cause no lakes are open yet!

Here is a picture of a baby swallow in the bird house I put up when I blocked the hole in the eaves. They come back every year to nest.

I hope it works...

I bet the twin girlie goats are cute! The ice is totally gone from the bay today, and I saw my first loons of the season this morning. They are so distinguished. As I just looked out in the bay I saw one of the Osprey fly by, and can hear them constantly making their high pitched noises. They are very noisy birds!

I'm still seeing snowbirds! No hummingbirds here yet (I'm in Michigan). I'm thinking of putting out my Oriole feeder though. I thought I heard one, but it could have been wishful thinking....

The neighbor and I have birdhouses, and they are 'NO VACANCY' during the swallow season! Plus, the swallows will take any 'hole' they can find to nest. I plugged a hole in my eaves and replaced it with a birdie house!
