Welcome fellow bird lovers!
My name is Debbie Andres and I absolutely love birds. I love watching them, feeding them, photographing them, reading about them, studying them – everything about them.
Like this beautiful Bohemian Waxwing you see here. I froze my butt off to get this picture but it was totally worth it!
One winter a few years ago, we had a large flock of Waxwings visit the yard to eat the berries off our cherry trees. It was well below zero that day but I was determined to get up close and personal with these beauties so I bundled up, headed out to the back yard and spent some time watching them and taking pictures…until my hands and feet were numb! 😉
They came back everyday for about 2 wks – until they had eaten all the berries off our cherry trees – and I loved every minute of it. What a treat!
During the winter I routinely shovel snow to keep paths to my feeders open so I can feed my birdies year round and when the long cold Canadian winter is finally over and springs arrives, I get birding fever!
I can get lost on a great bird website for hours and I love buying things that fuel my passion for birds. I’m always looking for a new feeder or the latest gadget that can attract more birds to my feeders and bird baths.
A while ago I bought a new pair of birding binoculars. I was on a budget and I’m a bit of a research fanatic so I researched for about a week before I bought them online. And when they arrived I bragged about them like they were the best thing since sliced bread and showed them to everyone I knew! 😉
