The envy of the birding community.

  1. What a great variety!! I want some of this but I don't have a WB Unlimited near me.

  2. Its brought you lots of colourful birds Dawn.

  3. Looks like good stuff! Will have to keep an eye out for chick starter...there's quite an urban chicken thing going on here in the DC area, so there must be some somewhere!

  4. Your birds sure do love the bark butter! I will be looking for the chick starter and trying to make the zick dough.

  5. A wonderful Ode to Bark Butter. And great captures too.

    Glad you solved the diesel problem. Must be for your generator. We've been going through propane like crazy. These furnaces are consumptive.

  6. I do envy you--great variety of birds. I must try to make some.

  7. A great selection of birds, thanks for showing them to us.
