In the Pacific NW, it’s a good time to start putting out nesting materials, which can include straw, pet hair and short strands of twine and yarn. But not dryer lint. #backyardhabitat #pollinatorgarden #birdsandthebees

Had a better view of this woodpecker today- it’s a downy rather than a hairy. Shorter bill and no dark spur of plumage at the breast.  And a pair of our house finches appeared today with the sparrows 😌

10 images. The birds are back!!! 💜 The bird feeder that we put in end of day yesterday to bring the birds back to the backyard was quite the success today. The first to arrive were tufted titmouse pairs as well as nuthatches. Then the chickadees, cardinals and redbellied and downy woodpeckers. At the end of the day a group of dark eyed juncos cleaned up underneath the feeder. 😌

After Doug Tallamy’s  talk @mtcubacenter I headed over to nearby @wildbirdsunlimited. Have been thinking of putting up a bird feeder. Our next door neighbor had one for years. I somehow thought that all the birds in the backyard were there because of the woods beyond but the neighbor didn’t put it up this year and very few birds! Our new bird feeder went up late this afternoon and is waiting for the birds to realize there is food in the backyard again 😌

Winter smarts. This squilly and all the other nest box occupants in our squilla-villa tree decided to stay in until the snow and wind subsides. 🌧️🐿️🌧️

One of my favorite birds in the Ohio garden- the cute little Carolina wren.  Look at that fat little body ❤️ I notice my Carolina wrens flitting about my bushes, hopping around the fence and underbrush, pecking at suet and even scoring some seed from my feeders.  And by the way, it’s perfectly acceptable to call a bunch of wrens a HERD 🐮 #wrens #birds #backyardhabitat @nationalwildlife #habitatambassador #nature #ohio #ohionature #ohiobirds #birding #backyardbirding

The Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts and Land Trust Alliance @ltalliance debuted a short film last month titled "Wild Possibilities"

Featuring members from a few different land trusts around the state including Lower Nehalem Community Trust, Wetlands Conservancy, Greenbelt Land Trust, Wallowa Land Trust, and Columbia Land Trust -- the film brings to light a shared common goal amongst us all: uniting communities and conserving land.

We are proud to announce that the Backyard Habitat Certification Program was featured, sharing a story of one family putting down roots in Southeast Portland. Watch the full video at columbialandtrust.org 🎥 🌿🌻 #fearlessnature #backyardhabitat #backyardhabitatcertification #portlandaudubonsociety

Most of the insects, spiders, and other mini-creatures that pass through or live in your garden or home landscape are beneficial—or do little to no harm to you or your plants. 
Only a handful of garden-inhabiting species are harmful to your plants; unfortunately, these give the majority of the mini-creatures found in gardens a bad name. An ecologically-healthy garden or landscape has a diverse fauna of insects, spiders, mites, centipedes, and harvestmen—each with a unique, and usually beneficial, role in keeping your backyard habitat healthy and functioning efficiently.
Let us share more interesting research based information with you! Follow our link:

Icy Pallet. Day 16 #photoeveryday #photo365 
A short walk outside into the below freezing temps following two days of freezing drizzle brought me to a pallet in my back yard. The first day of sunshine reflected off the pallet ice and made for some nice bokeh balls in the background.... presumably from ice drops on the twigs. 
I wasn't excited about the photos as I took them, but I had a few to choose from. This made the cut because it was the most unique.

Look what I was brought yesterday! A bird house specifically for Finches and small birds. I was so excited I already started carving into it and shaping the opening. Tony did research on what sizes small birds prefer. I love these collaborations so much!! Creativity is so much more fun when you get to stretch. I never really know what foundation he’ll bring me. #ceramicwares, #makersgonnamake #backyardhabitat, #gardenlife #gardendecor, #birdhome, #naturelovers,

🐢The best feeling when they can go back outside. These Mesopotamian Greeks will be the last to go to new homes next week. Later in the year, many of the turtles will be back with me. .

As a kid, I knew what robins, cardinals, blue jays, chickadees and Red Tailed Hawks looked like and could ID little else. During college, I participated in the Great Back Yard Bird Count and this lil dude was the first one I was taught to ID - the Dark-Eyed Junco - the little greyish black bird who sat in milk! That description was enough to stick in my brain and I've been slowly learning bird ID ever since and trying to create habitat for each and every one.

It's been a while since I've posted #nature pics but we actually got snow! I miss #snow. It's so pretty and central Ohio used to have such pretty winters. I've been pining away for my #crosscountryskis but we still won't have enough snow. Anyway, I am happy for the #birdfeeder show. Today we have our resident, punchy, Carolina Wrens and the sparky, Northern Cardinal. A special guest appearance from a White-throated Sparrow was a nice treat. #backyardbirds #birds #natureinyourbackyard #backyardhabitat

Not a beautiful pic, but it’s a simple heated birdbath setup. Birds need unfrozen water during the winter, which can be hard to find around the suburbs, so do a good bird deed and provide water over the winter 👍🏼❄️ I glued a silver tray to an old candle holder.  For about $18, I ordered an outdoor de-icer and slapped together this bird bath.  It’s prettier during summer with flowers, but it’s doing the job right now!  #backyardhabitat #birds #winter @nationalwildlife #habitatambassador #nwf #gardenforwildlife #birdbath #asseenincolumbus

I've just about completed a little project that I've been working on for the past couple of weekends - a screech owl nest box. The box is made completely from reclaimed barn wood off of our property. The boards are rough cut (probably pine) and could be 50+ years old. Aside from warpage and occasional carpenter bee damage, most of the lumber is still in very good shape. There's still a little bit of work left to do on the box, but its almost ready to be put out in the field. With any luck, we'll be hosting a family of owls this year - fingers crossed!

Occasionally, a crow or two will sit at the edge of the yard, seemingly assessing the activities of other birds and myself. In large numbers, I would consider them a nuisance, but singly, I can appreciate their shiney, scalloped feathers and inquisitive gaze

A diamond weevil hiding in the branches of a casuarina. Plant trees and you not only get shade, cleaner air, fresh smells, cooler temperatures, a calmer mind but very importantly some interesting visitors. #nature #backyardhabitat

Can’t get any work done today because these squirrels are so damn entertaining. They’re enjoying my new clear bird feeder. I didn’t think they’d be able to climb up the stucco wall, but sure enough, here they are!

Layers of Alberta. #photoeveryday day 9.
I wandered my back yard today in the cold and wind to find a something to shoot and settled in this Alberta Spruce next to my deck. I will probably follow up with two other shots i took as I had a challenge deciding which one to post. Ashley helped me decide on this one.

Before and after of a temporary garden bed. Client will be expanding patio eventually, but for the time being it's better than looking at weeds!

Resolution #6: Create Biodiversity
Encouraging a variety of plant and animal species ensures the sustainability of healthy ecosystems. Integrate a new native plant into your landscape, but be sure to avoid anything on your state's invasive species list (you can Google it).
Wildflowers have merit not only for their ornamental qualities, but for their toughness and ease of maintenance as well. Once established in their preferred habitat, they usually require very little attention, providing you with years of carefree beauty. Native plants also play a valuable role in preserving biodiversity and ecological balance. Since these plants evolved alongside native insects, birds and other creatures, they're often an important source of food and shelter. .

Even in winter the Goldfinch coloration is beautiful. They hang upside down to eat the nyjer seed in the feeder, just like they hang from the sunflowers 🌻in summer. I recruited this multi generation family to our yard a few years ago when I started planting sunflowers (which they love, and I in turn love watching them). Seems only polite that I keep them well stocked in the winter too.  Oh, and the tree is an Amelanchier (shad bush) we put in a few years ago. .

Just here celebrating National Bird Day🐦🎉 We feed the birds year round and are  rewarded with nonstop entertainment out our window. Recently our younger neighbor gave us the highest satisfaction, sharing that she never understood why people fed birds until they became our neighbors. They -and their indoor cats- now enjoy a view of the steady amusement at our feeders😸💚 There have been wild kingdom episodes as well🦅

Our Sport is of course a birding enthusiast himself😻 Our wild friends have an increasingly challenging world, from Los of habitat to glass impediments and non-native predators like -gasp-domestic cats. Please consider feeding the birds, creating a backyard habitat, and taking measures to keep our kitties and wild friends safe. 🕊🌱🌳💚 #birdenthusiast #nationalbirdday #nationabirdday2019 #feedthebirds #backyardhabitat #birding #catsandbirds #birdlover #catofday #loveallcreatures

Resolution #5. Protect the Pollinators!
Put out the welcome mat for pollinators and other beneficial insects by adding a bee house and planting bee- and butterfly-friendly gardens. 🦋🐝
Our Wooden Insect Hotel with Stake can be placed right in the garden to welcome pollinating butterflies and solitary bees, as well as lacewings and ladybugs that help control insect pests. It provides a vital haven for egg-laying, nesting and weathering storms. Vertical slots invite butterflies to roost. Horizontal slots attract lacewings. Tubes provide places for solitary bees to nest and lay their eggs. And holes attract ladybugs. Find it by clicking on our profile link! 🌸

The excitement was real when we saw our first birds at the bird feeder we just hung up. After running towards the feeder and scaring them away, he sat patiently, still and quite, for a good 5 minutes before a Carolina chickadee came back. He decide to move two feet from the feeder and waited for another 5 minutes and the bird came back again. The look on his face was priceless. We were amazed by his ability to focus and wait. .

We saw 7 different birds within 15 minutes, and a few we have never seen in the yard. We saw: White-winged doves, a titmouse, house finches, a mockingbird, house sparrows, Carolina chickadees, and crows. It was awesome!

One of my favorite things in the winter garden is the birds. In my yard, juncos and mourning doves feed on the ground, enjoying the leaf litter, finches, titmice and chickadees feed on old seed heads, robins and others love the crabapple fruit, and the flicker and woodpeckers love the suet :) Who is visiting your garden this week? #backyardhabitat #backyardbirds #flicker #redbelliedwoodpecker #downywoodpecker

Lots of laughter and excitement today as we filled our new bird feeder with seeds. After filling it up, we put on our rain boots and headed outside to hang it up. .

As winter approaches, our backyard birds start to consume more #blackoilsunflowerseeds than in the Spring/Summer when they are busy building nests, feeding their babies, and finding plentiful seeds/bugs in a thriving #backyardhabitat

We took down our tree today but it was a transition made sweeter by setting it up in the backyard as a feeding station and winter habitat for the birds :-) #backyardhabitat #feedthebirds #transitions #traditions #readyforthenewyear
