Column: Winter bird feeding
It is fascinating to witness how, as a winter storm approaches, the birds start tanking up-eating like there is no tomorrow.

Column: Willow Lake birding highlights
Last Saturday I led a Jay's Bird Barn sponsored bird walk to Willow Lake.

Column: Singing bird activity picks up with warmer weather
Even though the daytime temperatures the past few days have been downright balmy - especially for mid-January - it has been interesting to see how much snow is still on the ground on north-facing slopes and in shady areas.

Column: Midwinter Bald Eagle survey results
Last Saturday, I participated in the Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey under the direction of the Prescott National Forest Service.

Column: Citizen 'scientists' and technology combine to track wild birds
There are several examples of how every day citizens-individuals who are not scientists or biologists-contribute to the scientific knowledge of birds in a meaningful way.

Column: The year in review and the year ahead
As 2015 draws to a close, I want to express my gratitude. I am so appreciative of the support our family business enjoys from all of the bird and nature lovers throughout Yavapai County and beyond.

Column: More unusual bird sightings in the Prescott area
I am sure this comes as no surprise to my reading audience, but I must confess, I did some rare-bird chasing this past week.

Column: Migration-how far south is far enough?
This past week our family gathered for Thanksgiving in Logan, Utah, in beautiful Cache Valley. Needless to say, I went prepared to do some bird watching!

Tempt your sweetie with chocolate treats
For many people, chocolate is always in season and they don't need a reason to buy it or bake it! But since Valentine's Day is approaching, here are several recipes from the delightful bean.

Fruitful hints for tree-planting
The definition of a bare-root plant is one that has been grown in a field, lifted from the field with no dirt left clinging to its roots, and shipped to market in that condition. Hence the name bare-root.

Gardening tips for newcomers to the area
Most of us have had gardens in places where the soil is rich, its pH perfectly balanced, where the climate is blessed with consistent rainfall, gentle sun, and plant-coddling humidity. Mountain soil and climate present the opposite of such ideal gardening conditions.

It's time to think about seedlings
Garden Alert! Heavy snow is breaking branches off of juniper, pine, spruce, and cypress evergreens. Also being damaged are tall broad leafs like photinia, magnolia and Silverberry.

Use what you have on-hand
Just about everywhere you look this month it is all about organizing. From a kitchen standpoint, a well-organized pantry can serve you well. It can mean using what you have on hand, saving trips to the store, less impulse-buying, etc.

Don't be shy about varying traditional recipes
"Variations on a theme" is not limited to music compositions, and can also be put to use in the kitchen. One example is a basic potato soup, which tastes awfully good on these cold days.

Healthy houseplants make healthy households
Indoor plants are soothing because of their visual impact. On cold wintry days they add warm touches of life to enclosed, stuffy rooms. As we make our homes tight to reduce heating and cooling bills, our indoor air quality becomes a serious health issue.

A gardener's New Year resolutions
The past two weeks' combination of snow and wind can bring grief to any landscape. As snow loads up on trees, the excessive weight is unbearable to plants with under-developed root systems.
