Bird Feeder USA

Bird Feeder USA is committed to educating the world on the importance of bird feeders to the survival of birds while providing some helpful bird facts. Bird feeders offer a source of food to birds year round, often helping keep birds alive through poor weather conditions and periods of drought causing lack of fruits and foods that are essential to the nourishment of our feathered friends. The simplicity of bird feeders doing so much to help feed so many flockers is amazing.

Bird feeding has been popular for as long as poets have been writing, as birds offer a sense of peace and tranquility. John Keats wrote his famous Ode to a Nightingale, Emily Dickenson penned her A Bird Came Down and The Parliament of Birds by Geoffrey Chaucer. Shakespeare, Buddy Holly, and even the Bible make reference to birds in song and poetry.

Watching as birds play, dance, and socialize is considered good for our mental health. Their beautiful songs are relaxing and peaceful, and can help to remove some of the "noise" that interferes with our busy days. Birds are captivating, and soar high above us, allowing our imaginations to soar with them. As birds flap their wings and bathe in a bird bath, the calm and peace that surrounds their activity becomes clear. There are no loud cars or fast cats nearby if a bird is in peace. During your birds' visits, everything is just still, clear, and relaxing.

 

Weird-Bird

by Shel Silverstein

Birds are flyin' south for winter.

Here's the Weird-Bird headin' north,

Wings a-flappin', beak a-chatterin',

Cold head bobbin' back 'n' forth.

He says, "It's not that I like ice

Or freezin' winds and snowy ground.

It's just sometimes it's kind of nice

To be the only bird in town."
