CASITA ON THE GREEN

 

MAY 2019

What an amazing anniversary we had this past Saturday. Can you believe it has been 2 years since we opened our doors!  Thank you to everyone who has supported us these last couple of years and here's to another 20 years!!

Here are the birds I have seen at my feeders this month:

Bluebirds, Downy Woodpecker, Blue Jays, Cardinals, House Finch, Chickadees, House Sparrows, Robins (not usual, but they have been eating my No Mess No Millet), Starlings, Grackles, Coopers Hawk....(not eating my seed, just eyeing my birds), Mourning Dove, Eurasian Collared Doves, White Winged Doves, Gold Finch (in all their beautiful color), and I even had a Scissortail Flycatcher at my feeders(checking out the live mealworms, again, very unusual).

Spring is in the air and I have a number of baby birds at my feeders!  Please remember that these birds need extra protein and fat and the momma's need extra calcium this time of year as they lay their eggs. Having sources, such as our Nesting Blend Loose Seed and Nesting Blend Cylinders at your feeding station will help the birds have healthy babies and will help the babies as they grow on their own. It is so fun to see the mom's feeding their babies. My Bluebird mom couldn't wait for me to fill her "starling proof mealworm feeder" and started going inside the feeder and getting worms even before I had moved away from filling it. I got to see her feed her new fledglings right before my eyes!  Makes filling those mealworm feeders worth it this time of year!

Hope you enjoy this Hobby and keep sending us photos of your birds!  WE LOVE THEM!
