Calling all Chickadees!

myspy-birdhouse-review-parent-palaceMelissa, of Parent Palace, says she and her family love bird watching. “My whole family was excited to receive the newest addition to our bird watching collection, The My Spy Birdhouse.”

Her review of the birdhouse discussed weather conditions, the suction cups and double-sided tape included with the My Spy Birdhouse. “These instructions were very easy to follow and the set up was a cinch” she goes on to say. “They really thought of everything, from the Do Not Disturb curtain to the list inside that shows which insert to use to attract which variety of birds.”

Melissa then discusses some of her yard’s regular visitors, chickadees. “I have a lot of chickadees in my yard constantly eating from my feeders” she says. “I feel like when it is Springtime and they are ready to have their babies they will be most likely to move into the My Spy Birdhouse.”

MySpy Birdhouse Presents: Facts about the Eastern Bluebird

Eastern Bluebirds Preparing a Nest

Pair of eastern bluebirds preparing a nest in a bird house by Molenda Rachel E, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Take a drive in the country of Northeast America during the summer months and you’ll likely see a few Eastern Bluebirds sitting on telephone wires or perched atop nest boxes.  These marvelous birds have a big, rounded head, large eyes, a plump body, and an alert posture. Their wings are long, but the tail and the legs are fairly short. Their bills are short and straight.  The male Eastern Bluebirds are a brilliant royal blue on the back and head, and warm red-brown on the breast.  Females have blue tinges in the wings and tail, giving the grayer females an elegant look.  Here are some fun and interesting facts about the Eastern Bluebird.

  • The Eastern Bluebird is the state bird of both Missouri and New York.
  • Eastern Bluebirds often don’t visit feeders, but they are a great prospect for nest boxes.
  • Eastern Bluebirds can be seen across eastern North America and as far south as Nicaragua.
  • Eastern Bluebirds mostly eat wild fruit, berries and insects. They can also occasionally be seen capturing larger prey such as salamanders, shrews, lizards, snakes, and tree frogs.
  • Eastern bluebirds are very social birds and will, at times, gather in flocks of a hundred or more.
  • Eastern Bluebirds can live for 6 to 10 years and the oldest recorded life of an Eastern Bluebird is 10 years 5 months old.
  • When Eastern Bluebirds drop to the ground for an insect, they often make a show of it. They flutter their wings and have a fairly slow approach to their prey.

MySpy Birdhouse Presents: Facts about the Black-capped Chickadee

Black Capped Chickadee

Black capped chickadee bird by Donna Dewhurst, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Black-capped Chickadees are almost universally considered “cute” thanks to their over-sized round head, their tiny bodies, and their curiosity about everything…..including humans. The chickadee’s black cap and bib; white cheeks; gray wings, back, and tail; and their whitish underside with puffy sides are quite distinctive.  They have a habit of investigating people and everything else in their home territory and they often quickly discover bird feeders.  Male and females look very similar, with males being only slightly larger and longer.  Here are some fun and interesting facts about the Black-capped Chickadee.

 

  • Black-capped Chickadees is the state bird for Maine and Massachusetts as well as the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada.
  • It is notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights. Even when temperatures are far below zero, chickadees virtually always sleep alone.
  • The Black-Capped Chickadee hides seeds and other food items to eat later. They have a good spatial memory and can easily relocate the caches where they store food.
  • Black-capped Chickadees can be quite bold near humans and may even eat food from a human hand.
  • Chickadee calls are complex and language-like, communicating information on identity and recognition of other flocks, predator alarms and contact calls.
  • Feeders and nest boxes are often used by chickadees, especially when they are filled with wood shavings or sawdust.
  • Chickadees are one of the easiest birds to attract to feeders.  They don’t mind using tiny hanging feeders that can swing in the wind and they also readily visit window birdfeeders.
