    Bird Feeders and stucco

    Thank you for the reply. I did offer that, but with some people once they’ve formed an opinion nothing but their own findings will change it. They continued on with their finger pointing without listening to my offer. I do understand that they’re defending their homes. They have zero knowledge...

In that time I took up feeding birds and have had time to really see how the developers cutting down their trees has left them scrambling desperately for winter roosts. I live in zone 3 so...

    Not so camouflaged lol

    I have a huge green caterpillar eating my Schubert chokecherry. I believe it’s a Polyphemus moth. He is big and bright and a bit fearless - stands up to greet me 😳 I’m hoping I’ll be lucky enough to see him emerge in his hand size grandeur. Then off he’ll be into the night to find his lady love…

    Swallows desperate for homes in trumpeter Edmonton

    Hi and thank you :) These are tree swallows, not barn swallows. They’ve been here a month and the fights are daily. There are 3 other pairs trying hard to steal this nest.

    Swallows desperate for homes in trumpeter Edmonton

    I put up two swallow boxes and both have chicks - hatched today. - one pair is being swarmed by other pairs of swallows after it’s nestbox. Is there any organization that would put nest boxes out on public land for these poor little swallows? I live across from a natural park and lake, but I...
