Greeting from inside of Noah's Ark in the Garden State. Over ten inches of torrential rain fell in this area on April 14th and 15th. My back yard in Elizabeth and my pretty large fishpond became a huge lake. Most of the hundreds of fish flowed all over the proximity. The neighborhood cat had a field day!

On Thursday with the greedy doctor's permission and with a lot of anticipation, on April 12, I left Marco Island driving to New Jersey, hoping that the spring had arrived before I did. What a disappointment when I arrived in New Jersey very late Friday night, April 13th.

In New Jersey, we had better weather conditions when I was in the Garden State sometime during the month of January. The cold and nasty weather that we have been experiencing in the past few days, I am sure that many of us will never forget. Personally, I never have seen that happen in my lifetime!

Fairly large groups of many species of black birds are wandering around confused all over the area. They are not as numerous as the numbers that we experienced in January, however they are very unusually visible everywhere. Normally, at this time of the year, all species of wild birds pair up and are barely visible. Strange, the poor birds are disoriented and confused, usually at this time the year, the weather is stable and mild, and spring should be in the air; they cannot make their mind which direction to fly, north or south. Wild greens and vegetations are in dormant stage in this area. There are not many varieties of foods available that stimulate their reproductive mood.

I was hoping that my bird room breeding activity would have been in full swing. Not so far in this breeding season! No question about it, something is wrong with the atmospheric conditions. Even the birds in my bird room, who are in a very comfortable environment with artificial light and natural light, as well as comfortable temperatures cannot make up their mind if they should start 2007 breeding or not. This never happened to me before.

On April 16th I found no young canaries in the nest. Last year, during the same time I banded at least 500+ youngsters. However, I am still hopeful that things will change for the better soon? I am only going to be here in New Jersey for few days, I must return to Florida, the poor doctor's and hospitals need me!

The Gouldians finches are doing OK, a lot of youngsters and all is going well in breeding them. Saturday, April 14th early in the morning before the universal deluge started, I searched everywhere for chickweeds and dandelions. I managed to find some in areas close to house foundations and cold, protected areas. All my birds have been having a feast in the last few days.

My huge greenhouse, where for many years especially in the winter months I have been growing wild greens for my birds and for our bird food productions, on February 14th due to a terrible ice storm in Warren, NJ and other areas, a large tree branch fell on the top of the green house enclosure. The branch busted the heavy plastic cover; the temperature was below freezing for many days. The frost killed everything! My helpers did not realize that this was happening until it was too late. The greenhouse has been a good source of wild greens for all of my birds for many years. Now I have to rely on the greens in the wild, hopefully, the spring arrives soon? We must rebuild the greenhouse with stronger materials and also clear the dangerous trees that are close to it.

I started this posting on April 15th; I am extremely busy with many other problems to solve. I am trying to do the best that I can, just doing a little every day whenever I have a chance. I continuously get interrupted with the many other problems to solve caused by the heavy rain. I also have been away from my office for a long time and things got piled up. For each day that I am away from my desk, I have to work an additional 10 hours to catch up.

Today, April 20th, it seems that the weather is getting better? What a difference a sunny day makes! Today alongside a cemetery I found a considerable amount of crisp dandelions and chickweed. All the birds are much happier today than they have been for the past several days. Among the dandelions I found a lot of seeding heads in the milky stage; these definitely have given a big boost to all the European Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Linnets and others. This natural food contributed a great deal in stimulating the Carduelan Finches to start their breeding mood.

These natural foods also contribute a great deal in stimulating the breeding mood of all the seed eating wild Finches in their wild habitat. The wild birds will not start their yearly breeding unless their food is plentifully available. All over the world, no bird will start to breed in the wild, unless the atmospheric conditions are just right, again coupled with a plentiful supply of food.

My 10 pairs of Spanish Timbrados on today's date seem that that are getting in the real breeding mood along with all the other varieties of Canaries. I remain hopeful that from today on, things will change for the better. I will be flying back to Florida on Sunday, April 22nd, hopefully for just few days. My farming activity must get started soon. I need to produce a lot of wild seed, lots of Perilla and Evening Primrose seed as well as small wild Sunflowers seed and others.

I've had telephone conversations with a few friends and fellow fanciers from many parts of the USA and other parts of the world, lamenting very unusual problems that have occurred this year in bird rooms. I suggested to many of them to be patient and perseverance will eventually pay dividend. Even though that this breeding season started in a very problematic way, I am confident that this will turn for the better. The weather has not been right in this neck of the woods. I was talking to someone in the southern part of Italy. They told me that January was so hot it resembled June. However, in these days in mid April, it is so cold most people need to wear heavy jackets, just like we are doing here in New Jersey for some time now. I am sure the same situation is happening in other parts of North America? Well, we must try to do all that we can to help the birds to have a fairly successful breeding season. During the humid days, we must try to keep our bird room dry and well ventilated to avoid the build up of fungus and mildew. Excessive humidity in the bird room is very detrimental to the health of the bird.

Well, this is all the time that I have for now.
