Hey! JCs Wildlife, what are those weird bird feeders on your website?
JCs Wildlife does a lot of research. A lot. When your company consists of making and selling products that birds and wildlife depend on, as well as answering questions and sharing information, research should be a high priority.
A few years ago, we posted information about Hummingbird Migration, but did you know that since the last time the Hummingbird Guide has taken on the ambitious task of documenting Hummingbird "last sightings"? Similar to the interactive maps available for first sightings in the spring, they request birders to send in information on when they spot the last Hummingbirds of the season.
As the temperature climbs higher, our yards tend to fill with the sounds of birds. Yet summer feeding is often a challenge for even the most experienced birders. Here are some tricks of the trade, along with a few facts and myths:

Having moved into a fairly rural area on the outskirts of a Southern Indiana town means evenings in my backyard are full of interesting and strange noises.
