Updating look and feel of the site

Over the next week, you will see some changes to the Birding In Maine site. This is necessary to keep ahead of spammers and hackers who continually try to hack this site without any luck.

You may experience the maintenance page, which alerts you to come back at another time. You may also encounter a jumbled page or two, but these situations will be brief.

We hope the changes will be to your liking. If you have any problem viewing any pages on our site, please let us know and be sure to include which browser you are using.

Here at the home front, a Red Fox greeted us this morning by drinking from our bird bath. I had no time to get the camcorder, crows had chased the fox away.

There seems to be a shortage of meal worms throughout the USA. The shortage is expected to last 2-3 months. The reason for the shortage: parasites. Sounds like these creatures are causing havoc these days. Wasn’t it a parasite that caused the death of billions of bees last year?

With the warm weather coming up, please remember to keep those hummingbird feeders cleaned. Every 2 or 3 days should suffice, but not any longer. The proper mixture for hummingbird nectar is 4 parts water to 1 part pure cane sugar. And please, NO RED DYE!!

Happy birding!
