Two bird books we read over and over and over again were Owl Babies and The Story of Ping.

We have the most wonderful bird feeder hanging in our backyard.

Ever since the boys were itty bitty, they loved looking out our back window and watching the chickadees and cardinals flitting about.

Growing up, we always hated how those darn squirrels ate the bird seed — but we found the absolutely best bird feeder around that the squirrels have yet to conquer —  the Squirrel Buster!
