    • Water bottle?
      Will Amazons take to a water bottle and ball? I’m thinking of experimenting, first, so I can also use it in his little traveling around town cage, and also, God forbid I need to administer liquid medication. Of course, at home, this would be in addition to his water bowl.

    • Kentucky Warbler July 9, 2020
      Kentucky Warblers nest in forested regions in much of the East, preferring woodlands with a dense understory, often near streams or other wetlands. These birds can use our help. As their forest habitat shrinks, it’s easier for Brown-headed Cowbirds to find and parasitize the warblers’ nests.
    • Grosbeaks and Monarchs July 8, 2020
      Black-headed Grosbeaks are one of very few birds that regularly eat Monarch butterflies. Most birds and other animals find the butterflies unpalatable, if not downright toxic. The caterpillars of Monarchs consume milkweeds that contain toxic substances known as cardenolides.

    • White-throated Swifts July 6, 2020
      A pair of White-throated Swifts twists and turns, sailing through the air. Dashing headlong across the canyon toward an unyielding wall, the birds disappear at the last second into a slender crevice. This swift is aptly named — and doubly so.
    • Are Birds Nests Reused? July 5, 2020
      Let’s talk about nests. Every spring, robins build their cup-shaped nests using grass and mud. Orioles weave a hanging sack. It’s hard work, and yet once the chicks fledge, the structures probably won’t be reused.
    • National Symbol - Turkey vs. Eagle July 4, 2020
      As an old tale goes, after the eagle was chosen for national emblem, Benjamin Franklin questioned the choice.
    • The Painted Bunting July 3, 2020
      Every spring and summer, birders go in search of the superbly colorful birds that come back to the temperate US from tropical regions — including the Painted Bunting.
