Wishing all moms a Happy Mother's Day!!
Hummingbird Fun Facts:
- A mother hummingbird weighs only about eight times more than her egg.
- Hummingbirds lay the world’s smallest bird egg.
- Hummingbirds generally lay two eggs, each about the size of a blueberry.
- Ruby-throated Hummingbirds will have two broods, each taking 45 days from nest construction to fledging.
- Hummingbirds use spider webs as glue to attach the nest to a tree branch as well as a binding agent for the building materials.
- The nest is about the size of a golf ball; around 1 ½ inches in diameter.

They grow up so quickly!

🌳Only one week remains until the eldest Barred Owl chicks are expected to leave the nest box, and yesterday, one of the owlets got its first look at the surrounding woods! We'll begin to see these young owls perch on the entrance of the nest box more often over the coming days as they contemplate their first step into the outside world.

Bye, Bye Babies! It's been a fun few weeks watching the Barred Owl family live from our Wild Birds Unlimited Owl Cam. The baby owls all are grown up and will leave the nest very soon. Be sure to check out what's happening inside the nest box before they're gone. www.wbu.com/owl-cam

Bluebirds vs. red-headed woodpecker!

One of our customers shared this amazing video with us! Bluebirds are aggressively defending their territory/nearby nest and dive bombing a red-headed woodpecker. Apparently, they are particularly intolerant of this bird, more than any other bird that tries to come to the feeders. If only we could all see bluebirds AND red-headed woodpeckers in our yards! 😳

One big positive in all of this! Spring is a wonderful time to learn about nesting, baby birds, migration and so much more:)

During the coronavirus crisis, families are discovering their avian neighbors and nurturing the next generation of nature lovers.

"Seeking out birds helps my kids sharpen their observational powers, gets them away from screens, and lets them bathe in nature when most of the day is spent indoors. When a hawk calls, my kids respond," says writer Susan Cosier.

Have any of you tried hand-feeding backyard birds? “The Joy of Bird Feeding” book, available in our store, includes a chapter with tips and tricks for getting up close — really close — to your feathered visitors.

A Black-capped Chickadee makes way for the larger Tufted Titmouse, whose tuft goes up when he checks out the food selection. The female Red-bellied Woodpecker also joins in on the peanut buffet.

What would the birds say about this prediction for morning snow? They'd ask that their feeders be stocked with high-quality, high-calorie food like Bark Butter Bits!

Tonight's model runs are more robust. We maybe looking at delays Wednesday morning. This is not our usual way of getting snow but if we can get some heavy rates overnight...we may see more than what most are calling for.

Cold weather is on the way! Right now birds are hiding food to retrieve and eat at a later time. This behavior is called “caching” and it helps birds survive during bad weather and when food sources are low. You can help by keeping your feeders filled with a reliable source of food.

These red-tailed hawks are patients at #OwlMoonRaptorCenter. Red-tailed hawks are very common throughout North America. You can often see one of these large hawks perched on a pole or soaring over a field in search of prey. But one of these is special. Click on the pictures to find out why.

I really need to send a shout out to the staff at Wild Birds Unlimited in Ashburn, VA! I sent in an order yesterday for bird seed, peanuts, etc. I was so surprised that around 5:30 pm, the staff of the store showed up with everything I ordered! You guys are AWESOME!!
They are very knowledgeable about birds and love to share their love with theur customers.
I spy and owlet eye!
I spy a babies eye!
look what I found while walking in the woods yesterday! #alwayslookingup #owlbabies
Is this a red-tailed hawk? This hawk has been visiting and staring at my feeder in Reston over the last week.
Northern Flicker- taken this past Spring.
We have a FAMILY of Pileated Woodpeckers. Miraculously, we had all four visit today. We appear to have Mom and three babies (if you can call them that). We have (1) male and (2) females along with Mom. We have not seen Dad in a while. He is enormous! The love the suet.
Another generation of pileated woodpeckers come to our deck regularly. We see 3 of them in the late evening between 5 and 7pm. The like the suet from Wild Birds Unlimited.
The birds love their fountain, too, in this heat!!!
Love my new thistle feeder!!
The baby bluebirds. They are surely enjoying all the live meal worms that mom and dad are bringing to them!
