Enjoy feeding your birds without the mess! Birds peck individual seeds off the cylinder, preventing them from sweeping loose seed on the ground. They also spend more time on the feeder providing you with great looks at your birds!
Now is a great time to try seed cylinders, or if you're already feeding them, add another feeder to your yard! Often adding additional feeders draws in more birds at a time to view.
A mama raccoon found her way into our Owl Box recently and is taking care of her three babies. We're monitoring the site to determine how she was able to get around the baffles and reach the box so we can make sure the owl family is safe next spring. In the meantime, enjoy watching the raccoon family!

I have a bald bird at my feeders - is something wrong?
"Bald-headed birds" are often seen in late summer. Usually it is Blue Jays, Northern Cardinals or Common Grackles with a complete lack of feathers on their heads. While the rest of the bird's body looks normal, a completely bald bird certainly raises curiosity.
The most likely explanation for the baldness is an abnormal replacement of all the head feathers (molting) at the same time. Others may include environmental or nutritional factors, feather mites or lice.
There is also some anecdotal evidence that, in some cases, a simultaneous molt of all the head feathers may just be a normal occurrence for a very small percentage of individual birds.
Whatever the cause, bird banding studies show most birds recover from their period of baldness within a few weeks, and that birds recaptured in succeeding years often show no re-occurrence of this unusual molting behavior.
