It’ s always great to have a variety of birds around the feeders and when some new ones arrive, even more so! While we have had Pine Siskins in the past, and the odd one earlier this season, a few more showed up over the weekend, along with a larger number of House Finches. While we normally see them sharing the Nyjer Seed feeders with the Goldfinches, here they are loving the Sunflower Hearts (hulled sunflower/sunflower chips) at this large capacity feeder.

It is Thursday, January 10th….and it looks, feels like January! We have received some snow with more possible as the squall line coming off Lake Huron is heading our way. Temperatures are below 0 celcius with wind chills making it seem cooler. Nighttime temperatures will also be much cooler than what we have experienced so far this winter.
With this snow & colder weather, reminder to clear the snow from the seed ports in your feeders; fill your feeders with fresh seed (we experienced some damp weather prior to the cold…if your seed became wet, it could now be frozen); pack or clear the snow below your feeders for those birds who feed from the ground and add fresh water to heated bird baths! It is important to give ‘your’ birds a hand so that they don’t use all of their energy searching for food or water sources.
Wishing you & yours a wonderful new year, a very happy 2019.! Thank you one & all for for continued support through the 2018 holiday season….and all year long!
Happy New Year’s Eve! We’re open today, Mon. Dec 31 til 2:30 pm, then closed Tuesday, Jan. 1 2019. We’ll be back to regular hours Wednesday, January 2 2019!
Wishing everyone a Very Happy New Year! Thank you one & all for your amazing support throughout the holiday season & all year long!!
We’ve been experiencing a mixed bag of weather during December & more importantly, during the holidays! While, in our area at least, it has provided for perfect driving conditions for those who have had to travel to various celebrations, it may not be the best for seeing lots of birds around your feeders! Don’t worry….the birds are around & will return when they need the food that you offer!
Following days with lots of moisture or if your seed has been out for a longer period of time with no action at your feeders, you may want to check to see if the seed is wet or, alternatively, clean the feeder out, wash it and add some fresh seed. We would advise not to fill it so you don’t waste it should birds continue to be absent & weather still damp. However, once the temperatures drop and/or snow returns, you’ll want to have your feeders full & ready!
From our homes to yours, From all of us to all of you
Wishing you & yours the Merriest Christmas, the Happiest Holidays!
May your holidays be merry & bright; Full of peace, joy, laughter & memories
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all being so very special with your continuing support not only this season but all year long!

For the person on your list who has everything, including a garden area, consider a birdhouse for their gift! It’s always a great idea to encourage the birds to make someone’s garden their home, and a birdhouse is one of the ways to do this! (Feeders, water features, natural habitat using native species are others) From natural pest control to flower pollination, to weed control (some birds eat weed seeds), to relieving stress, there are many advantages to attracting birds to a garden! If you didn’t know this already, we offer a most awesome selection of houses at our location - 1830 Gainsborough Road, London, Ontario!
Do you still set your table with everyone’s spot chosen prior to your celebrations? These place tags are pretty cute & would be perfect if you or your guests are cat or cardinal lovers..or even if they’re not! They could also be used as gift tags. Either way, we think everyone will love them! We have them here at 1830 Gainsborough Rd., London, Ontario along with so very much more!!
The Squirrel Buster Plus is a great feeder & is loved by all…except the squirrels! The ‘Plus” holds 5.1lbs/2.3kg of seed and, as you can see from our pics, is Cardinal-friendly. It has an amazing warranty…should a part break, it will be replaced! The Plus also boasts a ‘Seed Ventilation System’ and is weight adjustable. If you know someone with one of these beauties, the Weather Guard is a wonderful add-on! Be sure to check out our complete line of Squirrel Buster Bird Feeders at 1830 Gainsborough Road, London.
For those who have been asking, we have a few WINTER ROOSTING BOXES now available!
Clean & fill your feeders; freshen the water in your heated bird baths….snow & colder temperatures are on the way!
While many may not be ready for the snow, it really is pretty on this Tuesday, November 13 2018! As well, it has certainly brought the beautiful birds to the feeders including the American Goldfinches!
It’s hard to figure where the month of October went, but here we are on the very first day of November! We hope that this month, once again, provides plenty of bird sightings so that we can share with you! A few days ago we were treated to three Red-tailed Hawks doing their thing! (here’s two in the photo and a video of one of them)
