PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/07/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: Each fall the arrival of the White-throated Sparrows are a sign of cooler weather on the horizon. Its hard to believe that this little six to seven inch bird prefers such a cold climate. It often resides along with Dark-eyed Juncos, also here for the winter. "White-throats" are usually here in numbers and are perhaps the most common bathers at the backyard birdbath. I make sure there is plenty of birdseed on the ground beneath the feeders, since they are almost exclusively ground foraging birds. The dense landscaping and tall brush pile in the back corner of the yard provide them cover from both predators and the elements. Their long smooth call with its initial high-pitched note is usually followed by three or four shorter notes. Even on the coldest days of winter, they find it appropriate to sing a song or two.

THE BIRD SPA

The Simple Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
