" B e as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings . "

Greetings!
Birding in Winter seems to be easier in some respects; after all the trees are bare with less cover for them to hide in. You can almost guarantee if you go for a hike you'll get some pretty great bird sightings.
 
On the other hand, some days I'm just as happy birding from the warmth of my kitchen window, which I might say we do get quite a bit of activity at our feeder.
This past weekend, a Cooper's Hawk was eyeing the feeder as well. I am happy to report there was no incident of survival of the fittest. Nature is beautiful, but in reality, it can be cruel in order to thrive.
 
We had a resident Red Tail Hawk on our property for the last couple seasons, but we see no sight of her now. The rest of the wild birds seem to be flourishing as a result: purple finches, red-headed woodpeckers, and plenty of goldfinches and chickadees.
 
When feeding wild birds, it is important to choose foods that is rich and nutritional. C.L.'s Blog below will help you decipher what to look for and what to stay away from.
 
Good news! We are adding more seats to the Birding 101 Talk with Dr. Peter Crosson for this Saturday, Feb 16th at 1 pm!
Please call the store to reserve your spot.

Happy Birding!

The Best Seed for Birds
It may be too cold to spend much time outside, but when you feed the birds a good quality seed you’re rewarded with a yard full of color and motion, and less mess for you! Inexpensive seed mixes often contain fillers such as golden or red millet, wheat, oats or...

Recently Country Garden was introduced to the National Wildlife Federation program to Certify Your Habitat. "Anyone can create a welcoming haven for local wildlife. Turning your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape, or roadside greenspace into a  Certified Wildlife Habitat®  it is fun, easy and makes a big difference for neighborhood wildlife."

We know that many of our customers would be interested in this idea.
Pam Latimer DC of Harwich told us that people in her town are striving to become certified. A community effort helps to share awareness for the need of natural habitats in our communities.

The city of Denver recently stated that they want to become a certified community... so it begs to reason, Cape Cod towns would be a natural fit for this program.
