Fall temperatures in our neighborhood are fairly moderate, but late into November the snow flurries begin to fly.  A brisk change blew in this week as a foreshadow of the winter to come.  It also signaled the need to deploy our bird feeders. 

While there is plenty of natural food still available in the wild, it’s a good time to present the feed stations as an alternate source for our feathered friends.

Giving the birds plenty of time to find the feeders is important in the event an early – and heavy – snowfall covers their natural resources.

For more information about feeding the birds, refer to this page at the Cornell Lab of Orinthology.

We started this blog to share our habitat project and related topics of interest.  We live in a suburban area that is quickly losing the wildlife corridors so essential to the circle of life.

Because of that, we have set a goal to design and build a refuge in our backyard.  This is a project that has a beginning, but is meant to be a living work of natural art.  There is no completion date, but there is a vision of beauty.

Over time, we hope to fill these pages with our experiences as well as knowledge we attain through hard work and research.

Sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor!  If you’d like to pitch in, we could always use a hand!
