Clear View Window Bird House

Window bird feeders and window bird houses are a lot of fun. These types of bird houses can offer you an up close and person look at the nesting process from the comfort of your own home.

The Clear View Window Bird House is an excellent choice for getting these closer looks. It’s easy to clean, and highly rated by buyers.


  • Lifetime warranty.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Unique viewing opportunities.

Be sure to adhere the suction cups to a clean window. Use windex, or rubbing alcohol to clean the surface. If you have issues with suction, try putting the tiniest amount of cooking oil on center part of the suction cups.

As with any window or reflective surface, be sure to treat your windows to prevent bird strikes.

A Sand County Almanac

Sand County Book 1

This book is essential reading for any naturalist, birder, or aspiring outdoors person.

“First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as “a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite,” A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America’s relationship to the land.

Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature, the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside; another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty-year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, Sonora, Oregon, Manitoba, and elsewhere; and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation. As the forerunner of such important books as Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch’s The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was forty years ago.”

Find it on AbeBooks: A Sand County Almanac.

2018 Animal Perspectives Calendar

The Animal Perspectives 2018 Calendar is out! Last year’s Lotus & Lily calendar was a hit, but this year, it’s all about the wild birds!

In addition to photographing all the birds in this calendar, I’ve added an artistic twist to my images. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

See it on ETSY: 2018 Animal Perspectives Calendar.

In the shop, you’ll find t-shirts, notecards, ebooks (yes, ebooks), calendars, and more! Etsy is a secure shopping platform which is why I chose it to host the shop! Check it out!
