Happy Anniversary!

August marks the one-year anniversary of my newsletter, The Backyard Birder. I hope the tips and techniques that I have provided over the past year have helped you attract more birds. I have a lot planned for the next 12 months, but I need your help.

I need to know what you are interested in. How can I help you gain more enjoyment from your backyard birding hobby? Just use the Contact Us page to tell me what you want to know.

In the past year I have given many seasonal tips on a monthly basis to outline the activities surrounding most backyard bird habitats.

This year I want to cover other topics like:

  • Wild bird identification
  • Wild bird photography
  • Bird watching tips
  • Bird Gardening
  • And more.

I hope these topics sound interesting to you, but if there is something more you want me to cover please let me know.

In the next few weeks I will be launching a new blog. This will allow me to share even more information with you in a more timely manor. The best thing about blogging is that it is easy for you to contribute your thoughts and ideas. I am very excited about this and I know it will be a lot of fun.

If you want to contribute content to my website now here are three places you can go:

Bird Food Recipes:

This is where you can swap bird food recipes with other readers. Making your own bird food is not only fun and easy, it is also economical. You will be surprised at how easy these recipes are to put together. Many of these recipes include common ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Bird Watching Clubs:

If you are a member of a local bird watching club, please tell us about your activities. What kind of programs do you offer? When do you meet? Where do you meet? Tell us anything you want.

Backyard Birds:

This topic is wide open to anything to do with backyard birds. Tell us about your favorite backyard birds and how you attract them. What is your favorite style of bird feeder? What type of bird food do you use most often? Tell us anything you want to here.

Please don't worry that no one will be interested in what you have to say. Your story will be read by hundreds of readers who will be delighted and encouraged by your experiences.

It has been fun sharing my thoughts with you over the past year and I look forward to giving you even more information in the year to come.

Happy Birding,
