Sometimes there is no travel required...simply feeders, a water source, and shelter will bring the birds to you. And then there is the seasonal change. Here in PA, the little "white-throats," and dark-eyed Juncos are Winter visitors. Grackles in the Spring along with little Hummers and the later Catbirds. The Bluejays, Titmice, Chickadees, Mourning Doves, and Cardinals to name a few are all-season guests here. Along with four species of Woodpecker, two species of Nuthatch, and three species of Hawk. It is very gratifying to see them bring their "ugly babies" to the feeder and watch the little ones mature. And then there is the time of day...some are morning and evening diners, and others like to sleep in a bit late, knowing the their breakfast will be waiting for them when they arrive. Just a look out of the window is better than any media that we see in our sheltered environs.
