Bird of the Week photo and text graphic.
Picture of a Blue Jay on a tree branch Blue Jay
Basics: This bird is easily recognized by it's perky crest, blue, white, and black plumage, as well as it's noisy calls. The Blue Jay is a very aggressive bird at the feeders, because of its size and character. Even though some people do not like to attract the Blue Jay, they are a beautiful addition to the winter backyard.
Housing: Open nesting flat platform are necessary, as in their natural habit they are attracted to flat spaces on tree branches.
Food: Offer a variety of food, to attract the maximum amount of Blue Jays to your area. Peanuts, black oil and striped sunflower seeds, elder berries, cherries, dogwood and acorns are Blue Jay favorites! Since the blue jay's bill is powerful and all purpose, it can handle the peanuts either in the shell or out. Suet is also something that attracts jays.
How to attract: Install a bird bath, put out a variety of seeds, berries, and suet, as well as maintaining flat platform areas around your yard.
Fact: Dinnertime is all the time for birds. Birds have a high body temperature and a high rate of metabolism, and digest their food rapidly. Each day they have to eat a lot to store energy and body fat.
Tip: Use baffles or put up temporary covers to keep the feeders from becoming clogged with ice and snow.

Houseplant of the Week - picture of a houseplant with text graphic
Cyclamen plant leaves and blooms

       These houseplants are valued for the up-swept petals and variably patterned leaves. The florist Cyclamen is the best know species in this genus. The small flowers of this plant are very sweet smelling. These are tuberous plants with the common heart shaped leaves. Cyclamen have a good transpiration rate, and therefore will add to the humidity in your home. The plants prefer a cool location with good air circulation! Cyclamen are great flowering plants to add interest to the home in winter, as they do best here from December through March.
