Happy New Year, Everyone!

We’ve decided that since it’s a new year, we’ll start a new season of BBN, so welcome to episode 1 of season 3! We had a quiet holiday here, and unfortunately we lost all our snow right after Christmas which made it a bit challenging for winter activities. It looks like we’ll be getting it all back this week though and some proper Canadian cold to go with it. My bird traffic has been down lately which is normal, so I’ve only left a few feeders up. Backyard Feeding this week is a segment from Steve Maslowski about the best light to photograph birds. David talks about the Brewer’s Blackbird which is fairly common in western North America, but not something we see here. EnviroMinute is for all you coffee lovers out there. We drink a lot of coffee at our office and were concerned about the wasted created by our K-cups. We’ve found a service that picks up the used cups and recycles them! So my challenge to you is have a look to see if you can find a service that does the same thing in your area and start recycling your coffee pods. Also visit https://www.terracycle.com.

Don’t forget, this months photo challenge is all about squirrels!
