This year I'm going to focus on the water feature -- I've tried a bunch of stuff - but really haven't hit the groove.
I'm thinking about incorporating a drip-through system filled via a rain-barrel and circulating pump - basically an amped up version of a pool system designed by the late Dave Tiller in the western UP and one that is wildly successful of bringing birds out of the woods (I lack both woods and warblers):
If I can convince Chris that a really good water feature outside is more important that running water inside then I might go all out and do something along these lines......THE VIDEO FROM 1:29 ONWARD WILL BLOW YOU AWAY.....enjoy
This one is pretty good too.
O.k. back to more important matters....like watching for the ice-breaker that's steaming up Green Bay this weekend towards Escanaba help Mother Nature get the waterbirds on -- already noticing Herring Gulls arriving en masse this afternoon. Spring On!
