Summer songster - Brattleboro Reformer

Bluebird Houses

Happy New Year to everyone!

With the holidays over, January has always been a reflective month for me. Thinking of the past year and lessons learned - and hope for a new and better year.

Spring is a welcome thought right now, although Winter has hardly begun! Thinking about the return of the bluebird in the Springtime always gives me a ray of hope helping me through the doldrums of winter.

I am reminded that when the bluebirds return here in the Northeast, they will be looking for a place to hang their hats.

You can help them by providing a place for them to return and nest in - and January is not too early to think about this! February is the recommended time to mount your bluebird house.

Yes, think bluebirds! Think Spring!

Feeding Your Birds

As I lay in bed contemplating many things such as, "Is it time to turn on the heat in the house?" or "Maybe I should spend the day putting away the summer clothes and getting out the warmer ones," my mind goes to the wild birds that visit my feeders every day.

Yes, it's time to think about paying more attention to feeding the birds, as the coming months will find them search for food to sustain them over the winter months.

So, if you haven't already, it's time to put out a bird feeder or two. You'll be doing the birds a large favor and in addition, you find yourself stopping to watch them often in your daily travels.

The Bird Bath Raft is Here

The Birdbath Raft is a new idea that turns a flower pot into a birdbath OR floats in a deep dish birdbath, helping small songbirds to "stay afloat."
