Birds Of The Garden

Gardening involves more than trees, plants and vegetables. A garden attracts nature's gifts of bees, butterflies and birds. These little gifts provide songs, beauty, color and insect control in many cases. My garden is not complete without them whether autumn, summer, spring or winter. They add enjoyment at all times of the year.

Thanks everyone! *Blush* (I guess they're just a part of me out here in the heartland.) Crossing Fingers!

Birds, like other garden dwellers add character and life to our environment and property. These are some of the pictures I used to help make this banner collage. Whether in trees, hedges, shrubs or flower beds they add purpose, meaning and happiness to our lives.

Truly such beautiful shots!

Btw, did you hang that orange to attract birds, or was it to attract some other animal?

We hang an orange each day strictly for the Baltimore Orioles. They love them and we feed them nectar from a container also. Photo attached.

Excellent banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

What a refreshing banner, and of course the knowledge bonus it brings. When I read "Baltimore Orioles" (and I'm not a sports fan) I thought, isn't that a baseball team's name? That's just a little bit of coincidental birdbrain trivia.

leon, we have orioles in southern california, too. however, they're not as colorful as the ones you photographed. they're yellow, black with a touch of white, and not the brighter orange-yellow on the plumage.

awesome pictures.

four of the birds, i recognize and researched, are dull compared to yours wherever you live? are you in the mid-west?

Leon,

This has to be one of the best banners. My husband and I love birds and feed them everyday (feeders and on the ground) of the year. We also have 6 hummingbird feeders that we put out during hummingbird season. We have a peanut feeder, 2 suet feeders, a mixed seed feeder, filled thistle sock that get changed to a new one every week or more if needed, a feeder that we call "the sunflower feeder" (mostly sunflower, but has more goodies). In the late winter/early spring, I spread the Wild Birds Unlimited hot pepper Bark Butter on our redbud tree.

We have 3 Brome Squirrel Buster feeders

and use hot pepper suet cakes in the suet feeders because of the squirrels.

We have been feeding the birds everyday (in feeders and on the ground), since Dec. 2000. The Eastern Cottontail rabbits and more than welcome to enjoy the mixed seeds I put on the ground, but the squirrels, not so much. We get a bunch of them every day of the year.

We also hang a birdhouse out under our Magnolia tree. We get a family of chickadees and then a family of house wrens. I clean it up in the fall and leave it out for the birds, in case some want to take shelter in it from the cold days and months.

The song birds, hummingbirds, butterflies and bees are wonderful and a joy to have around. We love seeing all the different birds here each season. Spring and summer brings lots of juvenile birds coming with parents and/or by themselves to feed. So sweet with their begging calls and their flapping of the wings begging for food to the parents.

Wonderful overall and I love it. Thank you for posting all your beautiful and wonderful pics. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Thumbs up Thumbs up
