Hello! My name is Jeff Jones and I live just outside of Nashville, Tennessee with my wife, Tresa and our little dog, Maggie. I have been feeding birds and wildlife in my back yard for over fifteen years! My goal has always been to get the most enjoyment for the least money and trouble.
I’m also a bit of a snob when it comes to my back yard visitors. Too many times I’ve heard people talking about their feeders being overrun with this or that nuisance bird. I can feel their pain because my very first feeder was a gigantic hopper feeder that I put out with sunflower seeds that was quickly overtaken by a flock of grackles. Then, after switching to safflower, it was the doves that wouldn’t let anybody else feed.
Through constant experimentation, I finally found a way to encourage the birds I want while discouraging those I don’t. My back yard and life have never been the same.
How Can I Help You?
I have devised a system to address whatever birds you have in your back yard. I can help you find that mix of feeders, food and strategies to have all the critters you want happy and keeping away those you don’t. With a mix of tips, stories, reviews and other resources I can help you do just that. Basically, you get to benefit from my 15 plus years of trial and error. I also want to help you save money by getting only the supplies, food and gear that fits your budget.
This Blog Is About YOU. Will You Help Me Help You?
As much experience as I have, I still haven’t seen or know everything. If I don’t know the answer I’ll tell you. But I CAN find out for you! Simply leave me a comment after any post or use the contact form to suggest any topic you’d like to see covered in the future. I really want to help you succeed with your bird feeding!
Above all, have fun!
About The BirdOculars Name
Back in 2009, everybody was setting up what were called “thin affiliate sites.” They had a wealth of product reviews but very little human touch. After trying my hand at that and doing some fine binocular, book and gear reviews, I decided that wasn’t really what I was about.
I spent way more time on sites where a human could teach me something. Who that person was made a lot of difference to me. I’m sure the same is true for you.
In the coming months, I’ll be creating resources to tackle your back yard refuge and make it a place you love to be. Stay tuned!
