On the porch at Birdwatching Dot Com
I served breakfast outside this morning to Friend Wren.

Everyone interested in watching wild birds deserves her or his very own binoculars.
A good binocular for getting started does not have to be expensive, but it should have good optical quality.
The Vortex Shrike 8x42 costs only $99.99.
Entice all your neighborhood birds to come up close. Offer them live mealworms, the irresistible treat.
Birds love to feed mealworms to their babies.
You can order mealworms and then keep them in your refrigerator for weeks or months. Offer a few each day to your insect-eating birds.
It's an amazing way to make friends with the birds of your backyard.
