Attracting Birds That Do Not Use Feeders With A Garden Bird Bath

Posted Friday 9th July 2010 at 00:11 by YourBirdOasis
Not all birds feed from a bird feeder. In fact some of the birds that you would love to see in your garden feeders, such as those brightly colored ones, are usually uninterested in what bird feeders have to offer. This is especially true for larger birds and for birds that consume solely insects. Still, you may want to welcome these animals into your yard. You can do that by choosing a garden bath.
A garden bird bath is designed to provide birds with the ability to stand in a few inches...

How to Attract the Indigo Bunting with a Hopper Feeder

Posted Tuesday 13th July 2010 at 00:20 by YourBirdOasis
The indigo bunting is a small, blue bird that is quite attractive. Many people wish to attract this bird to their backyard bird feeders because it is such an attractive color. The hopper feeder is a great way to do just that. This particular type of bird feeder provides the birds with enough protection from their surroundings and encourages them to feed there. Although some will react to a tube bird feeder, the hopper feeder tends to be a better option.

A Misty Blue Hill

Posted Friday 30th July 2010 at 13:52 by Tiger1
It's nice to lie back, close my eye's and just dream,
Of the blue tinted mountains of home,
The loch's and the glens and the clear running streams,
And wonder just what made me roam,

It's a fine winter day, the sun on my back,
The air is so fresh and so still,
I would shoulder my pack, head off up the track,
to the top of a misty blue hill

It's a memory now of day's long gone bye,
i would rest by the stream, relax, drink...

Back birding again

Posted Monday 13th September 2010 at 13:54 by Stoggler
It's mostly been a summer of cricket for me (watching, not playing!) and have not been birding much of late recently. I have been out on the occasional day but nothing really serious (although I did twitch a Hoopoe at Climping a couple of weekends ago).

All that changed this weekend though, and my, what a fantastic weekend it was too!

Up early Saturday morning and catching the train to Pulborough. Cue sitting in Nettley's hide for two hours to shelter from the rain...

Miranda 8x40 Binoculars

Posted Monday 1st November 2010 at 12:47 by Hooded Crow
Well, I know that the title here will cause some lip-curling from experienced birders. Miranda was a well-known brand, exclusively marketed by the Dixons Group (almost exclusively by Dixons themselves, although Currys did stock their 35mm compact cameras at one point). I bought my particular binoculars from Dixons in Putney whilst I was a student and working my way through Uni by working on Saturdays... in Dixons in Putney!

Anyway, as this weekend was wet and horrible I thought I'd...
