Thebirdcrest.com is a brand new website that seeks to become a resource for bird lovers looking for all the essential backyard bird supplies. Website founder Laura Allen sat down to discuss her website, as well as the recent addition of a new blog where she intends to share her ideas and insights with other bird lovers.

"I remember when I was growing up, my dad loved woodworking, and he built all kinds of bird houses and bird feeders for our backyard," said Laura Allen. "That was a long time ago, and when the things he built started to fall apart, I started looking for replacements."

Allen is the founder of http://www.TheBirdCrest.com, a new website offering all the finest backyard bird supplies selected by Allen herself.

"When I started looking for replacements for my dad's bird houses and bird feeders, I noticed a real lack of good workmanship in the models I found," said Allen. "One of the main reasons I wanted a website was to provide first rate bird supplies with good workmanship."

While Allen's website now offers an extensive selection of first rate wooden bird feeders, bird houses, and bird house pedestals, she has plans to expand in the near future. "I'll be adding bird baths soon, and I also plan to add owl houses, bat houses and butterfly houses at some point."

In order to better communicate with her customers, Allen launched a new blog at http://www.TheBirdQuest.com to complement her website.

"On the blog, I'll be offering helpful hints to deal with common problems like squirrels and predator birds," said Allen. "I also have a lot of unique knowledge about different aspects of birding, like hummingbird feeders for example, a lot of people don't know that, just like an infant, hummingbird feeders need to be burped, because during hot and cold weather an airlock can build up inside and prevent the hummingbirds from feeding."

Allen strives to keep her website as down to earth as possible, offering products that are well built, cost efficient and above all, loved by birds. "People can be comfortable shopping on the website because all the products are first rate, and I go the extra mile to make the merchandise and the shipping affordable."

USABirdSupply.com offers bird gift ideas for the winter months ahead. Climate changes are affecting birds and where they winter. According to Audubon analyses, many species are moving north to winter, reflecting global warming. Purple Finches and Wild Turkeys have moved 400+ miles north in the last 40 years, while the Marbled Murrelets, Ring-Billed Gulls, Red-Breasted Mergansers, and Spruce Grouse have moved 300-360 miles north. Pine Suskins, Fox Sparrows, Boreal Chickadees and House Finches have moved 250+ miles north.

However, some species are not moving north, to their detriment, as their habitat becomes drier. This includes the burrowing owl, the meadowlark, whose population has declined 72% in the last 40 years, the vesper sparrow and generally grassland species.

Living in Southern California, Florida, or the Southern US, winter might mean swing temperatures from the low 40’s to 70’s. In the northern part of the US, the winter means very cold weather and snow.

USABirdSupply.com Offers 10 Bird Gift Ideas For Winter

1. Winter Shelters – Picture blowing wind, horizontal snow, bitter cold and weighing less than one ounce. Placing winter shelters facing south ideally under eaves, in a safe area from predators and protected from the wind and heavy snowfalls can provide huddled birds warmth and protection from the environment. USABirdSupply.com offers winter shelters for birds and is a great gift.

2. Winter Roosting Boxes– Roosting boxes allow small birds to huddle together for warmth. They differ from a bird house in that the hole is at the bottom rather than the middle or top to reduce heat loss. They also have perches inside allowing many birds to huddle. Place the box facing south, in a protected area, safe from predators and relatively close to feeders. Hang out nesting materials and the birds will stuff them inside the box for additional warmth. Chickadees, wrens, titmice, and woodpeckers will use a roosting box. The box should be about 12 feet off the ground. A metal or slate guard around the hole will help deter squirrels. After the holidays, Christmas trees can be placed outside for a shelter as well.

3. Heated Bird Baths – Birds require fresh water for drinking and bathing year round. A heated bird bath or heating element placed in an existing bird bath will encourage birds to frequent feeders as they will have access to both food and water. While birds do eat snow, it reduces their body heat. USABirdSupply.com offers pedestal as well as deck- EZ-tilt heated bird baths. In the warmer US regions, having a bird bath year round near feeders provides an ideal bird watching environment.

4. Suet - Suet is a high energy food with a high fat content that helps keep birds warm. Having a window suet feeder, hanging suet feeder or suet log is essential for winter bird feeding. There are numerous varieties of suet including hot pepper. The hot pepper taste deters squirrels but not birds. Chickadees, nuthatches, blue jays as well as woodpeckers will be attracted to suet. Bluebirds, warblers, kinglets, titmice, and wrens prefer suet with small seeds. USABirdSupply.com offers a wide variety of suet feeders and types of suet.

5. Bird Seed – Seeds with high fat or oil content provide energy and should be selected based on the types of birds that winter in your area. These would include black oil sunflower seeds, nyjer, white millet, and peanuts. To reduce waste and have no-mess, buy hulled seeds in the winter.

6. Striped vs. Oil Sunflower Seeds – Oil sunflower seeds have more oil than striped sunflower, are smaller and have a thinner shell which is easier to open. Striped sunflower seeds are larger with a thicker shell. While most birds such as cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and blue jays eat either type, sparrows and blackbirds have a harder time opening striped sunflower seeds.

7. Feeder Placement - Ground Feeders for southern areas that do not have snow in the winter attract juncos, brown thrashers, towhees, and sparrows. In areas with more challenging winters, the bird feeders should be placed out of the wind and should have the area beneath them cleaned of snow so the ground feeders can eat. Hopper and platform feeders attract cardinals, blue jays, chickadees, and titmice.

8. Cleaning Feeders And Bird Baths Before Winter – Before it gets too cold, clean and sterilize the feeder to reduce mold and get rid of old seed. Use gloves and a stiff brush. Feeders should be cleaned once a month. To clean the feeder there are several methods: one part bleach to nine parts hot water, mild unscented dish detergent in solution, or 4 parts water to 1 part white vinegar. Scrub and rinse thoroughly. Fill when completely dry. The same ratios can be used for bird baths. Also clean the area below feeders with a broom or shovel and hose down. There are also long cleaning brushes and easy-clean tube feeders with removable bottoms. USABirdSupply.com offers cleaning brushes, easy clean tube bird feeders, and bottled bird bath and bird house cleaners.

9. Bird Feeder Rain Guards – Rain guards, which in some cases double as a squirrel baffle, protect tube feeders which do not have a cover over feeding ports. Guards help with rain (in warmer regions) and snow in colder areas.

10. Squirrel Proof Feeders and Baffles - Using hot pepper suet and red cayenne/hot pepper in feed helps deters squirrels (but not birds). Squirrel proof feeders come in a variety of styles—weight activated, tube feeders in wire cages, and battery operated feeders that flip, tip and whip squirrels off the feeder. Safflower, nyjer seed and natural and hot pepper suet are not favorites of squirrels. Baffles can also be effective for feeders and when mounted on top protects the seed from rain and snow.

USABirdSupply.com is Located in Clarence, NY Outside Buffalo And Offers Over 1100 Bird Products Including Squirrel Proof Feeders, Hummingbird Feeders, Purple Martin Houses & Gourds, Bird Feeders, Bird Houses, Bird Baths, Garden Art, Bat & Owl Houses, Garden Flags, Butterfly Feeders, Live Mason Bees, and Honey Bee Supplies.

Birdhouses are a lot of fun to build and hang in your backyard. There are many different types of species that enjoy the birdhouses. However, the humming bird is a unique species of bird that requires its own specific humming bird house. Once you know and understand the specific needs of the humming bird, you can build them a humming bird house that they will enjoy year after year.

Pay Attention To What The Humming Bird Needs

There are two important things that pertain to all humming birds. Humming birds usually build small nests and they will never live in the same humming bird house with other birds. So, in order to build a humming bird house that the humming bird will like, one must keep these two important factors in mind at all times.

Another thing to consider is the climate. Humming birds cannot have a nest where the sun is too hot. If the sun is too hot it may cook the eggs in their nest. Their eggs are very delicate and can cook quickly in the hot sun. One must also put the humming bird house away from the wind. Strong winds could blow the eggs right out of the humming bird nest. So, make sure you consider the climate when you are building your humming bird house.

Choose a high place to place your humming bird house. Most humming birds like to build their nests in trees that are at least six to twelve feet from the ground. They feel as if they are more protected if they are up higher. So, when you are placing your humming bird house, make sure to put it as high off the ground as possible.

Be careful when determining the location for the nesting platform. One of the best places for the nesting platform is to attach it to the side of a building or a tree and have it curved downward. Once again, remember to place it in an area where there is very minimal sunlight and wind.

Use humming bird food and treats in and around your humming bird house. This will attract the humming birds to your location and keep them interested in their new home. You can purchase humming bird food and supplies at your local pet store or anywhere bird supplies are sold.

These are just a few considerations to keep in mind when you are making or buying a humming bird house. Watching humming birds nest and raise little ones can be fun and exciting. When you pay attention to their needs, they are happier birds and will be more likely to return year after year to build their nests and raise their young.
