Duncraft announces "Bird Notes," a weekly radio spot featuring useful tips and information for backyard birdfeeding enthusiasts.

Duncraft, the catalog and website for wild bird and nature enthusiasts, has launched a weekly radio spot "Bird Notes," on WKXL 1450 Radio, Concord, NH. “Bird Notes” are mini-essays on backyard birding topics such as chickadees, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and the importance of water in the backyard naturescape. These same topics are discussed in length at in Duncraft’s popular Bird Blog. Sharon Dunn, Duncraft president, who hosts the spot, says, “Through ’Bird Notes’ we can share over fifty years of birding experience and knowledge with our long-time customers and brand new listeners."

“Bird Notes” is a weekly spot, repeated at 7:27 a.m. on Mondays, 12:39 p.m. on Wednesdays and 5:39 p.m. on Fridays; streams its programming -- just go to their website.

A recent spot on chickadees notes that this agile bird is quite adventurous, often the first to try out a new feeder in the backyard. And when you hear that familiar chick-a-dee-dee-dee call, listen closely, because a chickadee's call tells a story. The more "dees" in a chickadee's warning call, the more dangerous a predator is likely to be.

Dunn says, "I think chickadees are so loved because everyone can recognize them, and sometimes they seem almost tame. On our webstore we have a shopping feature for locating items for a particular bird such as the chickadee. Just click on By Bird! For chickadees, you'll find over 30 feeders, foods, houses -- just right for the chickadee. Our Cling-a-Wing Feeder is a great example; it's an ideal feeder for small clinging birds and discourages larger birds. Our exclusive Chickadee Blend birdseed is chock full of the nuts chickadees love! The Mahogany House is ideal because it has the 1 1/4" entry hole they prefer. And chickadees love suet also, so we feature Peanut Butter suet cakes in the chickadee section. If you offer suet, you will definitely have chickadees coming to visit!”

You'll find all the birding articles mentioned, as well as many more at Simply click on Bird Blog. The Duncraft website and catalog offer hundreds of feeders, foods and other specialty items for backyard birdfeeding.
