ANN’S WINDOW TO NATURE
On a cold winter’s day, there’s nothing more beautiful than a cardinal perched on pine bough heavy with snow. It’s almost as if nature has given you a gift.
Gifts from nature come regularly to those who feed the birds: woodpeckers on suet, jays on peanuts, and finches on Nyjer®. We delight in watching juncos peck through the snow beneath our feeders in search of seed. We are called to attention by the clatter of a Pileated Woodpecker coming in for suet. And we stand completely still when we get a glimpse of a “new bird” at our feeders. These moments are much like a hug from a loved one. They are rich in emotion, and they feel good.
Nurturing our need for nature through bird feeding has many benefits including improved mental health and increased physical activity. Feed birds, feel good.
Gifts from nature keep on giving, regardless of the season. We receive a little gift of beauty, joy, and good vibes with each visitor who frequents our feeders.
Give the gift of nature through bird feeding.
