February is National #Bird Feeding Month #Nature #SundayStills


Since moving to the west coast, DH and I have quickly become avid bird watchers. Being in Canada, we know how important it is to have food out for our feathered friends, but I hadn’t realized February was National Bird Feeding Month!

Check out Terri Schrandt’s interesting #blog to learn more and to participate in this week’s #SundayStills Challenge.

Here are some of the many birds we have on the island:

    1. They’re one of my favorites, too. Every fall we get hundreds of them flocking here for the salmon run. It’s quite amazing.

  2. Hi Jacqui! Thanks for joining the gang at Sunday Stills and following my blog! I’m so glad you could share your bird photos today! I have yet to still capture an eagle with my lens–sigh, one of these days! Well done!

    1. I didn’t either, but they deserve their own spot in the calendar 😊 what is the rarest bird you’ve seen, Mae?
      For me, it was a kingfisher- they’re beautiful!

    I didn’t know Feb. was birdwatching month. I love feeding the birds and beasties. We put out safflowers, oilers, mixed seeds, and peanuts, and get a decent selection of birds, squirresls, and chipmunks at our feeders (along with rabbits, opposums, and raccoons at night). A retired naturalist/park manager is in our writing club and brings bird articles to read when it’s his turn. Always interesting.

    1. I bet that would be interesting! I’m fascinated by the hummingbirds- they’re so fast and yet precise. They’re like darts!

    I love watching birds, although just on my walks, I am not an avid bird-watcher.

    1. Yeah, we’re the same way. We don’t have fancy cameras or anything like that, but it’s nice to see how many species we can pick out 😊

    1. Agreed! I wish there was an app so that when you took the photo it said what type of bird it was, lol
