Siskin Season!

Enjoy the Irruption!

Pine Siskins are taking over the Southeast in one of the largest finch irruptions in years! When their native habitat in the Northeast and Canada has a poor food supply, these birds explode past their normal range in seek of their preferred natural food, pine seeds.

These birds are heavily streaked with brown and might first appear to be female or juvenile House Finches, but look for the telltale stripes of yellow visible on their tails and wings. They also have smaller and more pointed beaks than other finches in the area because of their specialized food source.

The good and bad news is that they are legion and they are hungry! These social birds are perfectly happy to eat alongside each other, which can result in a feeder overrun with a striped, loud cloud of chatty Siskins, sometimes at the expense of other bird species.

Pine Siskins love sunflower chips and nyjer like other finch species, so be prepared to stock up on your finch goodies!

While their presence can seem overwhelming, remember that this is an exciting opportunity that doesn't happen every year. These small, seed-devouring birds are a treat in this painful year, and help remind us that the natural world is still a wonderful place. Enjoy them while they're here!

Sustainable Small Business of the Year

Bird House on the Greenway was recently named SUSTAINABLE SMALL BUSINESS OF THE YEAR by Mecklenburg County's Solid Waste Department!

Since before we opened, we have worked hard to minimize our impact on the environment, reduce our carbon footprint and work with the community to promote sustainable practices, and its nice that they noticed.

We were honored along with 7 other local businesses at a banquet at the Foundation for the Carolinas.    Melinda Johnston, of the Charlotte Observer, wrote a great article on our efforts.  Here's a link to her article.

On the Air!

We were recently invited to appear on the Fabulous Francene Marie show to talk about the birds and the bees (and butterflies).  It was a great conversation with a great lady!  We hope she invites us back soon.  Here's a link to the show in case you missed it.
