IT IS TIME FOR SPLASHING!

Richelle Hunter

Temperatures are expected to warm up this week and are already very warm in many parts of the country!  It is a time when you will find more birds enjoying the water you can offer whether it be in a bird bath, fountain, pond or just a simple flat dish. Everyone needs water...make certain to change or freshen it often, especially if it is "standing" or still...it will become a spot that mosquitoes will use so must be changed very often!!  Drop by to see our selection of  bird baths & other ways to offer water!

HUMMINGBIRDS ARE HERE!!

Richelle Hunter

The amazing Ruby-throated Hummingbirds finally arrived in our garden yesterday!! If you weren't aware, Hummingbirds will use both an orange-coloured "oriole" feeder and/or a red hummingbird feeder...hence the reason we encourage you to only use clear nectar for the good health of all birds, not just the Hummingbirds!! And, depending on the style of your Hummingbird feeder, Orioles will often use these as well!  With so many nectar-loving birds in our area, perhaps MOM could use an extra feeder in her garden!!?? Check out our superb selection if a new or additional nectar feeder is on your Mother's Day list!

CLEAR NECTAR ONLY!

Richelle Hunter

With Hummingbirds reported in Ontario, it is the perfect time to get your feeders out, if you haven't already, as well as a good way to 'convince' them to nest in your vicinity!  It is also the BEST to time remind everyone to offer CLEAR NECTAR ONLY!  Please, for the health and safety of the birds, do not offer any kind of nectar containing colour. The colours of your feeders, along with your blooms & blossoms, will bring the Hummingbirds (and Orioles) to your garden. As well, there should be no colouring in the nectar that you put in your Oriole Feeders. There is no way to prevent Hummingbirds from using an oriole feeder and vice versa....colouring isn't really good for anyone, let alone the birds so the best practice is to err on the side of caution!  Please also remember to change your nectar often and keep feeders clean & fresh!  Thank you for giving these beauties a helping hand while also enjoying their splendor!!

BALTIMORE ORIOLE SPOTTED; ANOTHER HEARD!! ARE YOU READY? WE ARE!!

Richelle Hunter

While the weather has been abnormally cold with snow & freezing rain, it seems that it hasn't slowed some of the migrating birds!  On April 19, 2017 we had a Baltimore Oriole visit our garden. We also had salmon-coloured tulips blooming!  After reminding folks of this visit on our FB page last night, a customer commented that she has already seen one in the London area!!  Are you ready...we are!!  We would normally advise that Nectar Feeders be placed two to three weeks prior to the "expected" arrival of Orioles & Hummingbirds. We often start out with orange halves for the Orioles.  Should cooler evening temperatures continue, you may want to bring the feeder in at night.

ICE, SNOW, RAIN & HIGH WINDS....CHECK FEEDERS & SEED!

Richelle Hunter

Following a weekend of freezing rain, ice, snow, rain & high winds in much of Ontario, and with more moisture expected this week, it is a good idea to check your feeders for damp seed and/or clogged ports. If seed has become wet, there's a good chance of it spoiling...you'll want to clean your feeders, dry them well and refresh with new seed.  Should you notice that the birds are not coming to your feeders, but are in your garden, there's a chance that the seed is no longer desirable.
