During the Winter Months, Do Not Forget to Feed the Birds

I live in Southern California but even here, the food for birds becomes scarce during the cold winter months. I try to feed the backyard birds and also the hummingbirds who stay for the winter. Last winter, 2013-2014, when there was only about 10 homeowners in my neighborhood so we did not have many birds but this year we have over 50 homeowners and many birds stuck around for the winter.

I have some bird photos here from the Cornell Bird of Ornithology site.

Do You Prefer Red or White?

The hummingbirds have hung around this winter so I try to give them fresh nectar every week. I decided it would be a nice change to give them red this week and they have been standing in line to get to the nectar.

I am thinking they like the red nectar more!

The History of Scarecrows
The History of Scarecrows

Hungry birds have always been a problem and they eat the crops in the fields. The first recorded history of Scarecrows were over 2500 years ago when the Egyptians and Greeks put them in their fields to protect the wheat from large flocks of quail and other hungry birds.
Immigrants who moved to the United States during the 1800s brought with them a variety of ideas for making scarecrows. In Pennsylvania, German farmers built human looking scarecrows called a bootzamon or bogeyman. His body was a wooden cross and his head was a … (28 comments)

feed the birds: Do You Grow your Own Birdseed? - 09/01/13 05:02 AM
Do You Grow your Own Birdseed? I buy big bags of an assorted wildlife mix for my birds and it seem to last a long time. Recently a lot of corn has popped up in my yard where the seeds had fallen last spring before I moved that feeder.


Hadn't notice until yesterday but these plants are getting very tall and even my dogs are trying to eat the leaves.
Last summer a big sunflower plant came up in this spot spot but it died off after blooming for several months.

feed the birds: Hang up Bird Feeders during Fall Migration Aug-Dec ...Save The Birds - 08/31/12 09:09 AM

Keep Your Bird Feeders Well Stocked during Fall Migration Aug-Dec

This year's bird migration is complicated by the lack of natural wildflowers, which have been hit hard by drought and forest fires. So birds that are looking about for their usual food sources are heading elsewhere. Large numbers of birds are swarming feeding stations set up in gardens and backyards in drought areas.

 Some hummingbird species fly 2,000 miles during migration. And with a heart rate of up to 1,200 beats per minutes, they often need to eat five times their body weight, every day. … (11 comments)
