What a difference a few days of pleasant sunshine and spring-like temperatures made in New Jersey. Suddenly, all of the grass lawns and other grasses became a luscious green. Many of the flowering trees suddenly blossomed. White flowers, pink flowers and other colorful flowering trees displaying an array of colors was a welcome sight for all to enjoy. Has nature finally awakened? The wild birds (outdoors) seem to be beginning their courtship; they seem more in the breeding mood. On Sunday April 22nd, early in the morning, from the window of my house in NJ, I watched a pair of Starlings performing their courtship dance. Suddenly, the male bank! and the pair begins gathering nesting materials. It was evident that they were beginning to build their nest. What a welcome site. Maybe our Canaries, and the other seed eating birds in our bird rooms, will come into their breeding moods, too? When I arrived in New Jersey on April 14th, everything looked so depressing. The effects of the cold and nasty weather were evident everywhere. All the vegetation and trees seemed to be at a dormant stage. I began to feel very pessimistic about the 2007 breeding activity outcome, indoors, as well as outdoors. All of the birds in my birdroom were not showing any signs of being in the mood for breeding activity. However, all of the Gouldian Finches and the Green Singers were busy raising their families. To make things worse, on Saturday in the PM hours and on into Sunday, the universal deluge began. Remember when I posted from Noah's Ark #2. This had to be worse. Well, despite of all the bad occurrences, weather conditions eventually began to improve, although very slowly, I might add. But boy, was that universal deluge #2 Unfortunately, because of my continuous absence from New Jersey and from my bird room, it is difficult for me to control every situation. Unfortunately, again this year, I discovered several pairs of females, as well as several pairs of males, fighting in the breeding cages and nearly killing each other. I had to do a lot of work to correct the pairing in an attempt to salvage the situation for this breeding season. Well, now, I am happy to say that as of Sunday, April 22nd, in the PM hours, which was just before a I took a flight to come back here to Marco Island, my breeding room was alive and well with love-making activity? Most of my Canaries had built nests and all seemed to be going well? We shall see, we shall surely see at a later date. As the old saying goes, " Never count the eggs before they are laid!" Before I left New Jersey, I made sure that I instructed my helpers to continue on keeping before all the birds, fresh clean cuttlebone and mineral grit. We also continued feeding the breeding pairs soak seed and nestling food, both which contain Calcium and Vitamin D. And both assure that the breeding birds will receive the necessary nutrients to produce fertile and hatchable eggs. These nutrients will also prevent egg binding, which is a very serious problem that can occur during the breeding season. In fact, cage birds of all species must receive the proper nutrition all year around in order to breed well when the Spring arrives. During many days of last week, I managed to gather a lot of crispy dandelion and chickweed, plus other wild greens, that my helper will keep under special refrigerated conditions, where the greens will remain fresh and crispy for several days. (I learned the method of keeping greens crispy and fresh while cruising on cruise ships). After a couple of days that the Carduelan Finches, and especially the European Goldfinches, have been receiving seeding chickweed and the seeding heads of the dandelion and other seeding weeds and grasses, they begin to sing their hearts out. As a matter of fact, when given the same types of greens, the European Greenfinches, also begin to feel in the breeding mood! We will be supplying nests and nesting material to the European Finches during the first week of May. That is when the European Goldfinch' beaks should be of perfect white color. Remember, pairing them early and giving them nests and nesting material is simply a waste of time and may result in failure when they are not ready. Providing the Carduelan Finches, as well as other species of birds, with the perfect nesting materials will aid a great deal in achieving better breeding results. Perhaps many of you have noticed the kind of nesting material the wild birds use in their wild habitat and the way birds build their nests. They start by collecting small dry twigs from trees. Then they collects roots of trees and grasses. Finally, they finish with fine pieces of grass and animal hairs. They build their nests with various materials; thereby, creating a nest so that the eggs, and eventually young birds, will have proper air circulation. However, their special creations still keep the eggs and youngsters dry and clean at all times. I have seen fanciers that use Styrofoam type nest pads and cotton for nesting material and unfortunately, all of them have been experiencing terrible breeding results. These types of nests become wet and have very poor air circulation which is detrimental to the health of the youngsters, and results in a heavy mortality rate of the youngsters. Through my personal experience, I have found that Canaries all basically breed in the same way, regardless of the type. Many times I even use Norwich and Yorkshires as foster parents for other canaries with excellent results. Many times I have had nests with 3 Norwich youngsters. I then place an additional 2, or sometimes even 3 youngsters of the Color-bred Canaries, or other canaries, in the Norwich nest and the Norwich parent did raise all of the youngsters with tender loving care. This is also true for the Yorkshire parents. Actually, it only takes a few simple steps, when followed to the letter, to ensure the Canaries and other species of birds, successfully raise their youngsters. First is #1) Provide the birds with an ideal environment. Then #2) Provide the birds with a sensible, clean and fresh seed diet, coupled with the right supplements, including a small quantity of fresh, crispy, dark greens and a small amount of fruit, too. Next #3) Supply the feeding parents with a sensible, clean, non-rancid and freshly made nestling food, coupled with the properly prepared soak seed. Also #4) Prevent the infestation of avian parasites. Last #5) Supply the feeding parents with a clean, cool bath every day. The rest you leave up to Mother Nature! Simple, Right? Well, that is all for now, my fellow fanciers. Just do the right thing in your bird room and remember that perseverance will pay great dividends. Please, do your share of posting, let us keep this wonderful hobby alive and pleasurable.
