Last week was a very rough and emotional week for me personally. I was at the bedside of my mother in hospice. The facility was like nothing I had ever experienced. The wildlife outside the floor to ceiling wall was truly therapeutic to a hurting soul. While sitting holding her hand my Son looked up and said Mom look an eagle. A beautiful messenger in a time when you struggle to find meaning. For me this beautiful sight represents a very powerful thing. The eagle is a messenger, delivering messages to and from Spirit. So while an eagle sighting may be a message to you, it may also be an affirmation. Do you ever ask for a sign that your prayers and wishes have been heard? An eagle sighting is a confirmation that they have. If you have asked for spiritual guidance, the eagle is your direct connection to the powers that be. The eagle comes with a very clear message that things are indeed about to change and the time to be ready is now. Enjoy and embrace life. It is so very precious- Trisha

In winter, White-breasted Nuthatches join foraging flocks led by chickadees or titmice, perhaps partly because it makes food easier to find and partly because more birds can keep an eye out for predators. One study found that when titmice were removed from a flock, nuthatches were more wary and less willing to visit exposed bird feeders.

Cardinal birds are a fascinating and beautiful bird species. They have this attractive color, especially the male birds that are pleasing to the eyes. Plus, Cardinal birds are known to be active songbirds that can sing various melodies. Think of how your backyard looks and sounds like if you can successfully attract cardinals into your property.

Aside from its physical and behavioral characteristics, the Cardinals also have many interesting backgrounds associated with them. Do you know any of them? What does a Cardinal mean to you ?

We've had our differences, but maybe it's time to call a truce, even if it's just for one day. January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day, and while they can be a menace, they're also pretty darn adorable and fun to watch. So enjoy your day, squirrels, because the truce ends on January 22.

Black-capped Chickadees seldom remain at feeders except to grab a seed to eat elsewhere. They are acrobatic and associate in flocks—the sudden activity when a flock arrives is distinctive. They often fly across roads and open areas one at a time with a bouncy flight.

Are cardinals a brighter red in winter? Actually, yes! During fall and winter these dusky feather tips slowly wear off, revealing more and more brilliant red. The birds reach the peak of brilliance by midwinter ahead of the spring breeding season. Against snow-covered conifers, it's a feast for our eyes, too.photo credit unknown source.

Our blends focus on two primary goals. The first is to provide ingredients that benefit birds most in terms of what they’re seeking nutritionally—energy, fat, protein, calcium, etc.—We don’t use fillers or cereal grains, such as milo, oats or wheat, in our blends. Other providers will use cereal grains to cut costs and allow lower retail prices. Since birds aren’t attracted to cereal grains, they get kicked out of the feeder and down to the ground as birds look for their preferred seeds. Most of these kicked-out grains become waste, attract unwanted pests or germinate into unwanted plants under the bird feeders. That is a waste of the customer’s money and makes a mess of the garden area.

The second goal is to use ingredients that birds find most attractive. Most people feed birds because they enjoy that interaction with nature. We want our blends to enhance that interaction and the customer’s overall enjoyment of the hobby. This is reflected in our mission statement, “We bring people and nature together.”

National Bird Day Illustration Time Lapse

We truly have the most talented and skillful staff here at Wild Birds Unlimited.

Today, we celebrate WBU's very own graphic designer and the positive impact she makes with her keen ability to story tell and bring the WBU mission to life through her work.

You may recall our post from last week (check it out if you haven't seen it)! Our graphic designer put her heart and soul into creating and designing the illustration for that post.

Here's a sneak peek into her process, from drawing the birds by hand, to designing the final product in Adobe Fresco with her iPad.

It can be difficult for birds to find a natural source of open water in fall and winter. When they are unable to find open water typically birds will eat snow in the winter to get their water. Open water is incredibly important for birds to drink and bath in. Bathing even in the coldest temperatures helps birds keep their feathers in good condition. This is important for insulation (keeping warm in cold temperatures) and escaping predators. For example research has shown that chickadees with well-maintained feathers can sustain a 69° layer of insulation between outside air and skin. Birds also require water in winter to properly digest their food. For all of the reasons offering open water in the winter through a heated birdbath increases a bird’s chance at surviving the winter.

Offering your backyard birds a source of open water in the winter will also enhance your enjoyment of backyard birds. Whereas some birds in our neighborhoods do not eat seed and bird food from our feeders water is required by all birds. Through water you can attract an even greater variety of birds to your backyard including: American Robins, Brown Thrashers, Northern Mockingbirds, Northern Flickers, chickadees, cardinals, nuthatches, doves, woodpeckers, wrens, warblers, redpolls, finches, grosbeaks, jays and sparrows.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I can tell you these days… I run on coffee.. anyone else? Here’s some good news- Coffee is abundant in bioactive compounds that promote health! Plus a few more things! Lowers your risk of type 2 diabetes, Protects your ticker (in quite a few ways), Boosts brain health (if you don't overdo it), Improves your mood — for longer than you’d guess, Gives your workout a measurable assist and May help you live longer! Surprised? And I’d coffee can do all that, wouldn’t it be wonderful to drink a brand that is also looking out for our feathered friends? Bird Friendly® Coffee is coffee that comes from family farms in Latin America that provide good, forest-like habitat for birds. Rather than being grown on farms that have been cleared of vegetation, Bird Friendly coffees are planted under a canopy of trees. These trees provide the shelter, food and homes migratory and local birds need to survive. Now isn’t that cool?
