We put out grape jelly today for our bird friends (many photos)

Last edited Thu Mar 26, 2015, 05:59 PM - Edit history (1)


Edit: These photos are from previous years, not this season.

It is time for our oriels to show up. This Saturday we will put out the hummingbird feeders. We get a great selection of birds because Fontenelle Forest is on the other side of our back fence: http://www.fontenelleforest.org/

Last week raccoons ruined an old Shepard's crook hanger. I had to go buy another heavy duty version. That gives us a place to put a hummingbird swing.



The new heavy duty top looks like this.





We use this jelly because it has no HFC. Be sure you get the label marked natural.



Delicious, bold fruit taste
No high-fructose corn syrup
No preservatives
No artificial flavors or colors
Also available in convenient, kid-friendly squeeze package

You can find this at the local bird store. It is no longer available in gallon cans. We would go through 2 every year.




Here is the feeder we got at a democratic fund raiser auction. Hand made by (Gardens by) Nancy. The next year by coincidence Nancy took care of my mom in hospice. The mushroom top used to be straight across. It got pushed up by a Pileated woodpecker. We left it like that for when he comes back for more.




Oriels, Tanagers, and more come in for the jelly.

2. That works well?

I've tried putting out fruit several times, and pretty much always had birds ignore it.

I've tried oranges, apple slices, pulped up raspberries, and none of the wildlife seems in the least interested.

We are outside the range of the Western and Hepatic Tanagers.

36. OS Packer fan and Bluejay whisperer





http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024270619

We are babysitting one of our winged friends on short notice (RELEASE PHOTO!!!)

Marta and I are in the family room. We both heard the loud bump of something hitting our glass wall in the dining room. The glass has several decals to warn birds away. But we still have bird strikes from time to time. Marta got up to check. A blue jay was laying in the snow with one wing open and one wing up against it's body. It is still breathing. He is recovering in a cardboard box in the laundry room. This is what we have been told to do in the past for strike victims.

Blue jays are a nasty bird. But we feed them peanuts in the shell everyday. We will let you know how things turn out later today.

OS

UPDATE: He is fine. Marta went to check on him and he was ready to jump out of the box. I took the box outside and he jumped up on the box.

It took about an hour for the recovery. He stayed by me for about 30-40 seconds to look around and get his bearings. The temp was 5 degrees F. Here we are under the deck saying hello. He said thanks and flew back into Fontenelle Forest: http://www.fontenelleforest.org/

And we have Bluejays around here. They are smart birds. About 25 years ago, the jays in our neighborhood would attack cats and try and get them killed. They would trick a cat into following them, and land on the street when a car is coming. This was a residential area, so the speed limit was low.

25. Similar experience

Walking home we saw a large flock of bluejays swooping at something on the ground and generally creating a disturbance. Further inspection revealed 3 feral kittens whose eyes were still shut. Area jays were working cooperatively to take out the future predators.

We did not let nature take its course (a debate for another time). The momma cat was quite distressed to see what had occurred during her absence and promptly removed them to safer parts unknown.

Living as I do in an arid California desert, I've never seen wild birds with such brilliant colors. We sometimes see little finches with a pretty blush of red or yellow, but nothing as gorgeous as those.

12. OMG! I LOVE this!!! Our little birds' nest is now officially back in use again

for the third year in a row!

Little black-hooded birds built it up in the corner of the overhang above our front door. Those birds, I have since learned, are called Black Phoebes. I used to call them "tuxedo birds" because they had little white/cream-color breasts and dark gray wings and back and tail. And a little black head. And their tails twitch up and down when they're communicating or excited or agitated. They're the cutest things!

Two years ago we noticed there were little lumps of mud that started appearing up at the top of the wall under the eaves. Before you knew it, there was a nest! I thought it was a swallow's nest because they make mud nests up high on walls.

And soon enough, I noticed there was activity coming from there. Every time we'd open the front door, there was this SWOOP! Something flying out in a big curved SWOOP from up in the corner there across the front yard to the nearest tree. ZOOM! There it went. So fast you could barely see it. A few weeks later, noise! Little chirping and cheeping coming from up there, and soon enough, little bird heads were sticking up from down in the nest. Last year, toward the end of April I heard 'em again. And the next day, we saw this little head sticking up, mouth WIDE open. The next day we saw two little heads. Next day there were three. And eventually there were FOUR! And of course, the swooping. LOTS of swooping, as the parent got the hell outta there and flew to the nearest tree. Sometimes the mom would perch there and squawk at her hatchlings. She'd be yelling at them really loud - probably trying to tell them to lay low cuz there were creatures lurking (us).

Then there comes the time when the hatchlings are getting bigger, so big at one point that they don't all fit in the nest anymore. Then inevitably one of 'em winds up living on the edge of the nest, or what you see are little bird butts sticking out the nest because they can't all fit in down inside there. And then, by Mother's Day, they're all grown enough to leave the nest and fly out into the world. I have seen the first flight of two generations of last-bird-to-leave-nest. The first flight is always a little shaky. I watched one fly out and wobble around the tree in front, and then zoom off. Guess it finally got its bearings.

So now, we're starting to have SWOOPING again! Third year in a row! Wonder if these are the kids from last year? The grandchildren of the year before? I'm just loving it. Kinda glad it's happening now. When I get the blues too badly about what's happened with that crashed airplane, I go out and watch the birdies. It's so healing.

LOVING it!!! Just freakin' LOVING it!!! Especially this week. Sorta restores my faith!

32. I definitely won't be making one; I prefer the looks of the baffles to the cages.

Cages are also rather pricey, especially when I consider the apparent intelligence and/or persistence of the squirrels hereabouts (SE Ohio).

What do you think of those products which purport to discourage wildlife? I don't think they're very effective, even though iwould wish to find one that actually works. (Have chipmunks running across our patios fairly consistently spring-to-fall.)

I have never used jelly! I spend so much on food for the animals it makes me happy though. I'm sure I could have taken a really nice vacation with the money I spent this year! I've seen so many new birds this year, it's so enjoyable to watch .I have all kinds of feeders, roosting boxes, etc. I now have three bat houses that are always full in the summer and eat all my misquotes. I will now need to visit the store for jelly and a new feeder! Thank You.

A few years back I lived in Coarsegold Ca and they have Quail there. They are so cute all in a line following it's mother for food. I used to fill the feeder with bird sunflower seeds and also throw them on the ground for the quails. I would go through a 40 pound bag in about a week.

It has to be a feeder that will hold semi-liquid. A local hardware or bird store should have them. Orange in color will attract Orioles. Orioles also like orange slices.

45. Had a red-breasted grosbeak eating last year's buckthorn berries this morning...

This time of year I pay attention to the crab-apple and buckthorns as some of them hold dried fruit and attract all manner of birds. Earlier this week the robins were working them, with the ground frozen in the morning I suppose hunting worms is out of the question....

In the warmer afternoons we've had box-elder bugs and lady-bird beetles emerging from under leaf-litter and bark, causing a lot of commotion among hungry dicky-birds. I'm not quite sure what the sand-hill cranes are doing to get by. They're spending a lot of time in fields plowed last fall.

Close to the house? I put jelly and oranges out last year for the first time and the catbirds liked it, but no orioles. Everybody said it should be far from the house. We hear orioles, and my father saw one fly past the feeder, but they never went for the food.

Our feeders are about 30 ft from the house. Once you get one, you will get a flock fighting for more.

It helps to have a bird bath near too. The birds bathing sound attracts them.

for the heavy duty feeding pole with the multi-armed top? I've been looking for one just like that. How tall is it?

The photos are beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I have 2 oriole feeders, an orange one like in your photos and another one that has a place to secure 2 orange halves and a grape jelly bowl in the center. It's covered so that the rain doesn't ruin the jelly. Can't wait until after this next snow to get them up, then hang the hummingbird feeders.
