We are joyfully moving back to California at the end of the month and are busy preparing, so this is likely to be our last post (unless we see the flicker babies that the mother is caring for). The weather was nice yesterday so we had dinner outside, and we were happy that many of our bird friends came by as if to wish us farewell.

We have started a new blog, California Birds. Right now, it mostly contains photos from our trips to California, but we'll post occasionally once we get settled.

Hi warren. Nice to hear from you! That sounds fun about your friendly cardinal. It's a beautiful bird that we don't get here. We are enjoying our backyard full of birds right now - spring is early and so pleasant here.

Hi I'm Tony DeStefano, an Iraqi Freedom combat veteran with severe PTS, I never use the D... it's demeaning for us because we were not "disordered " we were wounded thank u very much! Here are some lovely photos of my feeders activity from my deck in Hackettstown, in NW NJ: if I can post them that is... I have tufted titmouse, downy and red bellied woodpecker, the ubiquitous blue jay and cardinal white breasted nuthatch, warbler nest in a gourd with babies, house finch, the black headed cowbirds (unfortunately ), I believe it is a nightingale... I feed them the oily sunflower seeds, the mixed seed with mealworms, some suet, mixed berry seeds, and I put out a plant and hummingbird feeder with zero success. Otherwise I am feeling pretty good about my efforts! And far less anxiety over war trauma!

We are glad you found birding. We have moved away from New Jersey 10 years ago and no longer maintain this website, so there is no way to upload additional photos

I suggest you use Instagram to post your photos. It will actually get a much wider audience than this website anyway.
