Outdoor pets -- wild birds are coming to visit!
In some parts of the country, spring starts to surge in January. In others people are in the throes of snow and winter ice...and are feeling the winter flow of life.
Birds are such an interesting window into the year round cycle of life in nature. By migrating hither and yon, they tell us about seeking an equilibrium in life. Some like it hot. Some like it cool. Some tolerate the coldest conditions. Some must have temperate zones. And some prefer the steamy jungles.
In the Americas we have birds that travel thousands of miles to find just the right condition, and some birds who travel just a few miles each year.
So if you would like to explore those birding wonders, here are two web sites that will deliver the whisper of wings and the warble of song to you no matter what the weather outside...
Patuxent Bird Identification InfoCenter
This bird preserve and education center presents photographs, songs, videos, identification tips, maps, and life history information for North American birds.

Get prepared for the spring migration through your region. Take an informal census of the birds currently at your feeders and in your neighborhood...and then plan to take a similar census monthly to see who comes to visit. Next year you will be prepared to provide a helpful banquet for your visitors so that they have the energy-rich foods needed for those long treks to find bird-paradise.
