One of the Facebook groups that I belong to is Alberta Birds. It is a wonderful group, full of very active members. Every day I get to see wonderful photographs of birds that people have seen in the wild or the backyard.

While many of us faithfully buy peanuts for backyard bird feeding, have you ever stopped to wonder about where peanuts come from?

The weather is beautiful, and it’s the perfect time to sit outside and enjoy watching all the birds visiting your backyard. Don’t forget to keep your feeders filled during the summer months.

Spring and summer are great times of the year for feeding finches. Goldfinches become a beautiful yellow in these months and house finches, purple finches and pine siskins are plentiful. So how do you attract these little birds to your feeders?

Black oil sunflower is a much loved food source for wild birds. In fact, studies have shown that black oil sunflower is the top choice of most seed eating birds from chickadees to sparrows. So why is black oil sunflower so popular.

Brrrrr... it's suddenly so cold out there! So glad I filled the bird feeders yesterday while it was still beautifully snowy but not frigidly cold.

With winter approaching, we are starting to see birds migrating to their winter feeding grounds. That means that the redpolls hopefully will be showing up at my feeders later this fall.

Northern Flickers are one of my favorite birds and I have a few of them frequenting my feeders at this time of year. Flickers are not as common as some of the other birds in your backyard, so I thought I would give you a bit of information on Northern Flickers and how to attract them.

This feeder by Wild Bird Trading Company is what I call a "fly - through feeder" meaning that it is ideal for birds that just want to fly in, grab a seed and fly out quickly.

Nuthatches are one of my favorite backyard birds. So small and yet fiesty, I enjoy seeing these colourful Red Breasted Nuthatches coming to and from my feeders. It is easy to see which seeds they enjoy the most based on the feeders that they frequent.
