Heated Birdbaths

Australian Birds - Crimson Rosella

by Geoff Oliver
(Melbourne, Australia)



I was out with the family last weekend at a local park here in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne, Australia. Many of these birds came up very close. I think they are quite used to human contact and were after food.

Anyway this one in particular was prepared to stay quite close as I filmed him. I felt like he was actually trying to work out what I was doing - as he peered down the camera lens.

You can hear my grandchildren in the background talking to / about him.

He will certainly remain in their memories as a particularly friendly chap! I hope you enjoy him as much as we did

King Parrot - Eating in the Rain

by Geoff Oliver
(Melbourne, Australia)



Caught this beautiful King Parrot last weekend during a very wet period. He was obviously hungry and wanting to eat!

They are regular visitors to our backyard along with lots of cockatoos and crimson rosellas.

The recent wet weather has given me the opportunity to get some shots of these birds from the normal views seen all around the net.

Hope you like it!

A close up look at many different kinds of birds as they visit a bird feeder during an Indiana winter. The footage was filmed with a GoPro Hero 3 placed beside the feeder. Watch as the birds land and feed just inches from the camera. If you enjoy the video then please share it wherever you like. Comments welcome.

Various Visitors to my Bird Feeders!

by Brian
(Dallas, NC, USA)




I've recently gotten into bird watching and bird feeding. The video I've placed here shows two of my feeders and a bird bath I recently purchased.

Being new to this, I honestly don't know what most of the birds are. I know I've got some nice footage of a cardinal in there. I see a yellow finch and I think I got a robin using the bird bath. But I'm still learning what a lot of these guys are.

One this I noticed is that as soon as the bird bath was added to the area by the feeders, business picked up. It quickly became the all in one stop for a lot of birds.

As for the seed, I'm using just a wild bird mixture in one, and some thistle in the tube style feeder. The thistle quickly attracted the little guys once I added it.

I would ask anybody with tips or info worth sharing about bird feeders and bird watching to comment on the video on youtube. Thanks!!

Various visitors to my Bird Feeders!
by: Cindy, Calif.

Well for a "New" comer, you sure shot one heck of a beautiful video!!! I thoroughly enjoyed that! What I saw were, the Gold-finches, yellow with black on top of head, black wings, and the female all yellow.

The Cardinal, yes, beautiful, the American Robin, and the little one with white-beige or grey, , black on head and chin, either the Carolina Chickadee, or Black-capped Chickadee, (have to watch it again, ), the House-Finches, grayish -brown streaked with thick beaks or bills, males can have red, orange or yellow head and chest colors, and I saw the back or tail end feathers of a blackbird, that may have been a European Starling, didn't see the whole bird!

Also, what looked to be possibly a titmouse! Gray bird with top-crest darker, tiny, quick! My how enjoyable!!

I am an avid bird watcher! Really enjoy spotting and identifying birds! And capturing pictures!! That was so pleasant to watch!! Thank you for posting that!!
I'm sure you'll see many more surprises at your feeders!!

This was taken at Doi Inthanon National Park near Chiang Mai Thailand during a 3 day 2 night bird watching trip.

Best time for birding in the park is November through March.

I live in Chiang Mai Thailand so I visit the park for bird watching at least 20 times a year.

Baby Barn Swallows


(Hillsboro, OR USA)



The Baby Barn Swallows hatched today(June 20 2017)! We have been watching the nest since spring, waiting for this day. There were 2 eggs in the nest on May 29. They laid a total of 4. At this point only 3 of the 4 eggs have hatched. These are very new chicks.

Notice how the barn swallows call to make the babies open their mouths for food.

There are six subspecies of barn swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere. Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina.

These are nesting in Hillsboro, Oregon, USA.

Day 3

Barn Swallows

You have no idea how much I've wanted a pair of barn swallows around. I did have one follow behind my mower recently.

Thank you for your submission.

Juvenile Coopers Hawk Takes a Bath!

by Debra Dooley
(New Mexico)



I spend my Saturday's sewing, one of my passions, but I have a bigger passion.... Birds!

Something told me to look out my sewing room window and sure enough there was a big bird, a Juvenile Cooper's Hawk to be exact!

This is the first time I have seen a Cooper's Hawk take a bath in our yard, and he picked the shallowest birdbath we have, only about one inch deep, but he made it work!

We frequently have Cooper's Hawks haunt our yard on and off, adults and their young, most often looking for a quick snack. It was a real treat to see one actually take a bath!
