Back from Brazil – The Autumn Glen HOA in Stephens City begins their annual set up of 10 bird condominiums to make ready for the 60 purple martin nesting pairs returning after their 4,000 mile migration north from the Amazon Valley of Brazil. Martins prefer their nests in an open area with a minimum of 50 feet in diameter away from buildings, trees and other bird houses. The houses are placed 15 to 20 feet above the ground. Martins also need a fresh water source near the nesting site. Scouts are the earliest arrivals each year. They are the oldest members of the population and head north to claim the best nesting locations. Scouts can be either male or female birds. Look for scouts to arrive in northern Virginia in late March. Martins move north as the weather warms and insect populations start to increase.

Anyone can create a welcoming haven for local wildlife.

In fact, wildlife habitat gardens support twice as much wildlife as conventional lawns and non-native plant gardens.

Turning your yard, balcony container garden or work landscape into a Certified Wildlife Habitat®️ to attract birds, butterflies, and other neighborhood wildlife is fun, easy, and can make a lasting difference.

Nesting season is just around the corner, and many birds will call your yard home. You might even say that their families will become part of your family, and you can make a significant difference in how well these extended families will thrive and survive in your own backyard.

The need for protein and calcium increases substantially for birds as they prepare for nesting and during periods of egg-laying.

Keeping feeders clean is an important part of feeder maintenance. Clean and sanitize your feeders on a regular basis. This can be every few weeks or more frequently.

Feeding birds, watching birds and counting birds: three simple actions that make a world of difference. This year, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) takes place February 18-21. By simply offering a variety of foods to your birds and recording the activity around your feeders, you will provide valuable information that helps scientists determine where bird populations are thriving — and where they need help. https://www.birdcount.org/

When it comes to filling your feeders, there is a difference in the foods you offer – and the birds know it! Feeding a poor quality food can be a waste of money when the birds don't eat it or simply kick out filler seeds in many brands of bird food. The experts at Wild Birds Unlimited can help you pick the right foods for the birds in your backyard. Our top-quality bird foods target the specific birds you want to attract and discourage the birds (and critters) you don’t. Get 20% OFF One Regularly-priced Item. Offer valid thru 02/14/22.

Celebrate National Bird Feeding Month by helping the birds survive a traditionally difficult time of the year.

It's a time when birds' natural food supply can be very low, before insects appear and the few remaining wild fruits, berries, seeds and nuts are either hidden or undesirable.

You can help by offering a reliable source of high-quality food. Then enjoy the fun of watching a variety of birds as they stop by for a bite.

We are closing early today (at 3:30pm Sunday 1/16) because of the weather. We will hopefully open at the regular time tomorrow. Hope everyone is at home enjoying the birds. (The heated bird bath has been almost as popular as the feeders today!)

You may have noticed birds in winter exploring every nook and cranny in the trees around your yard. They're looking for insect larvae, pupae and eggs tucked among the tree bark. It's a seasonal feeding behavior that gives birds the fat and protein they need. You could say they're "bulking up."

As winter takes hold, you can add to the bounty by providing Jim’s Birdacious®️ Bark Butter®️, a food that's hard to beat when it comes to giving birds the high-energy/high-fat content they need to survive. Plus, it has a fun name!

At this special time of year, the delight of seeing so many active and energetic birds at your feeders, combined with the knowledge that you are having a positive impact on the quality of their lives, makes feeding birds a joy.

And this joy is available to everyone. By providing just a few simple things, such as nutritious foods, clean water and ample shelter, birds can reward anyone with many priceless hours of happiness and enjoyment. Bird feeding is a joyful hobby, and it should be shared with those you love.

Never discount the impact it can have in bringing people and nature together for the benefit of both.
