We have many birds that spend the winter with us here in the gardens of the Old Parkdale Inn. We keep the feeders available to satisfy the finches, juncos, chickadees and nuthatches. Collared Doves, Towhee, Quail and a jay or two also frequent the seed blocks. The number of summer birds has been increasing and it’s nice to see the summer plumage returning on the Finches. I must confess though our favorite spring bird is the Evening Grosbeak. Such a stunning bird.
Our feeders sit right outside our dining room so guests can watch the flurry of activity during morning breakfast. The gardens of the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast are recognized as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Foundation. We’ve obtained this recognition by providing feed, water, shelter and nesting provisions for the many species of birds that visit our gardens. If you’d like to spend the night at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast and get front row seating at our dining room table, give us a call or book direct online
