Have a great weekend everyone!
Bird Feeders, Bird Seed, and Gift Shop located in London! Follow along with our News from the Store!
Many folks are reporting more Orioles in their gardens & around their feeders than ever before!! It’s a very busy time of the year & we are trying to keep our shelves filled, but it has been difficult! Many are enjoying orioles not only at their nectar & fruit feeders, but also around their peanut, suet & even safflower feeders….it’s been a pretty amazing spring! Thanks everyone for all of your support this season & throughout the year!
Thanks to ALL those who have feathered nests for ALL creatures on this planet!
Along with another ‘wave’ of Orioles this morning, our first Ruby-throated Hummingbird has arrived. Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are here too…hoping for an Indigo Bunting or two! If you’re in need of an new feeder for any of these beauties, you know we’ve got an amazing selection here at 1830 Gainsborough Road!
We certainly hope that you’ve got your nectar feeders out & ready….We just had our first Baltimore Oriole of the season at ours! Pic from just moments ago!!
Along with the nectar-loving birds, another returning favourite around backyard feeders are the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. They will be arriving anytime now…and they LOVE Safflower Seed! Last year they arrived at our feeders on May 1st! You’ll want to be ready for them, so stop by 1830 Gainsborough Road, London for the very best in seed & feeders!
We sure hope that you are ready to greet the beautiful Hummingbirds! Where have they been reported? Check out the following links - Journey North and Hummingbirds Canada , then head on over to our location at 1830 Gainsborough Road, London for everything you’ll need to welcome the Hummingbirds to your garden!!
It’s that time of the year….while some birds are searching out the best spot for nesting, this American Robin is sitting on a nest! What is happening in your garden?
Wishing you & yours a very Happy Easter/a lovely long weekend!
We hope that you have your nectar feeders cleaned & ready…a Hummingbird has been reported in Amherstburg, Ontario! We recommend that you not totally fill your feeders so as not to waste! You just never know when they or the beautiful Orioles will make an appearance…if temperatures warm & winds co-operate, you’ll want to have feeders ready for them!
Over the past little while and in the past couple of days, more of the sounds of spring have come alive! Doesn’t it also make you feel so much better knowing that warmer weather will soon be coming our way….but most likely after a little more cooler weather!
Favourite feeder birds will be returning before we know it - Orioles & Hummingbirds are on their way! Check your feeders - whether you are looking to replace one or are just getting started, we’ve stocked our shelves with everything you’ll need to welcome these beauties to your garden! We usually recommend putting out your feeders a couple of weeks prior to their expected arrival!
Seems to happen more often than not! The good thing…we know it WILL eventually improve and it was much better than the last day of March!
It’s a day to celebrate everything green….we especially like one particular shade of green!! Have you started the countdown to the return of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds??!!
March is the month when the Tundra Swans make their stopovers in many areas of SW Ontario! They are on their way to their breeding grounds in the north. If you are planning a visit to see them, make sure you do it sooner than later so that you don’t miss these beautiful birds! A couple of popular spots are the Thedford Bog near Grand Bend, Ontario & the Aylmer Wildlife Management Area. Be sure to check out the “Return of the Swans” at Lambton Heritage Museum.
Two more arrivals in our garden - Grackles & Cowbirds have returned!
Spring Migration is underway with new arrivals at feeders & around the garden! Today we saw our first Red-winged Blackbird! As well, we were delighted to see a Killdeer pair in a nearby field!
While we have heard many others report beautiful Redpolls in their gardens & around their feeders, they finally arrived at ours! Needless to say, the Nyjer Seed feeders are certainly busy with such a variety visiting along with the return to colder temperatures bringing more birds! Often the Juncos will also feed on the nyjer seed, so sharing is necessary between the different species that arrive.
With this being the first day of Meteorological Spring, we are officially kicking off the countdown to the arrival of many of your favourite feeder birds, including the beautiful Rose-breasted Grosbeaks! They, and so many others, will be here in approximately two months, give or take a few days…. Happy March!!
