Yeasty Adventures

We stumbled upon the neatest birding store this past weekend on our way to lunch with some family members. The Birdwatchers Store, lcoated on Rt. 108, Slippery Rock, PA has everything you need to pursue a backyard birding hobby along with some sweet gifts for all occasions.

Since last year, I have become completely enamored of the avian visitors to my backyard. After weeks of fighting with squirrels and other critters to save the food for the birds, we have arrived at a good compromise. We hung two suet holders from the upper deck on our house and so far, the only visitors to the feeders are songbirds. (This year, though, we have attracted a small flock of starlings too, but not much we can do about that.)

While at the store I picked up a third suet holder and filled it with a tropical blend that the birds are not  interested in as of yet. Too much to hope a Baltimore Oriole will stop by? Maybe. The other peanuty suet concoctions have a lot more takers.

If you are in the neighborhood, hope you can find time to stop at the bird store or find one like it near you. They also have several feeders and birdhouses in their back yard that you can watch when you visit. The owner told me that I should already have my birdhouses in place since the returning flocks are checking out  new housing for the summer already.
