Bird Watching is Now in Season!

Ace Perkey Pet Triple Tube Bird Feeder.

I’ve always loved the sound of birds chirping outside my window – there’s something so peaceful and homey about it. Then, about a year ago, my cousin totally inspired me to try bird watching – he had the uncanny knack of being able to identify birds by their chirpity-chirp-chirp sounds…amazing!

 Ever since then, I’ve become a “birder nerd”.

I even placed a bird feeder outside my office window and soon had a flock of feathered friends visiting me daily. It has basically been visual meditation.

Ooooooohmmm…chirp! Chirp!

Now, since my brother- and sister-in-law’s daughter, whom we call “Bing-Bong”, just turned one, they’re now in the market for fun, easy and inexpensive ways to find family entertainment.

Ding! Ding! I knew they would absolutely LOVE to give bird watching a try!

So, when I was asked by Ace Hardware to be one of their 2016 Ace Bloggers…

(cue me jumping up and down cuz I’ve wanted to be in that club for years!)

…my first assignment was to sample their fabulous Perkey Pet Triple Tube Bird Feeder (try saying that three times fast!), the high rise of all bird feeders!

Perkey Pet Triple Tube Bird Feeder offers neighborhood birds a high rise place to dine!

As the name indicates, there are three tubes which can be filled with three different types of seeds. Here are the ones we placed inside:

A smorgasbord of bird seed!

Ace Wild Bird Food – attracts all kinds of birdie species!

• Kaytee® Nut & Berry Blend Bird Food – attracts Cardinals, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, and many others that love nuts and fruit.

Ace Thistle Bird Seed – yummy for Gold Finches, House Finch, Purple Finch, Indigo Bunting and other birds. Oil in the seed makes it an excellent source of energy for birds.

As my brother-in-law, Johnnie, started filling the bird feeder, Bing-Bong became so excited! What’s wonderful about this springtime sport is that the entire family AND the newly extended bird family all benefit! Who doesn’t love a fun outdoor party with a good turnout, right?
