    I found this while surfing the web this morning.  I love the look on the squirrel’s face!  At least he’s bothering with this guy and not raiding my bird feeders!

    Moonwalking Bird!

    This bird must have taught Michael Jackson the moonwalk.  I believe it’s a Manakin (please correct me if I’m wrong).  This video is hysterical, a must watch!  The bird shimmies forward, then moonwalks really quickly backwards across the branch.  I could watch this bird for hours!  I want one in my bird house!
    The bird moonwalking starts about 40 seconds into the video.  For a special treat you have a crazy lady imitating the bird.

    When I woke up today it was 12 degrees in chilly Western New York.  There’s snow on the ground and my car groans at the turn of my key.  My thoughts turned to birds and how they survive the blustery cold.  We know the birds that do not vacation in the cold weather have extra special down feathers to keep them warm through the winter.  Birds however still lose most of their heat through their feet.  So would there be a market for heated bird houses?

    Embedding multiple bird houses within the frame of your house is an extremely interesting concept.  This house has 10 bird houses within the frame of the house.  I’m curious as to the noise level inside the house and if the birds over the years would possibly compromise the structural integrity of the house.
    Bird house innovation is always fun to see!

    Whether you’re purchasing a bird house, or building your own bird house one of the aspects of the bird house you’ll need to decide on is color.  Your first instinct will probably be to choose a color that will stand out, or enhance your yard.  Though, this may make the bird house more attractive, unless your bird house is for purely decorative purposes you will be doing a disservice to your tenants by drawing attention to potential predators.

    This is a terrific video for all of the do-it-yourselfers who have been looking to build their own gourd bird house. The video is a little over 7 minutes long and goes over all of the steps to having your own gourd bird house.
    The only problem is gourds take a year to dry before you can use them to create a gourd bird house.  So, if you haven’t already dried out your gourd for your bird house, you’re going to have to wait at least a year before you …
