After seeing a story in the local paper about Birdsbesafe LLC, a local woman contacted us to see if we might help her with her bird-hunting golden doodle named Luna. Yes, this comes under the "now I've heard everything" category, but it was interesting. Her dog regularly makes a full speed dash from her door into the fenced in yard and charges the birds feeding under the bird feeder 30-40 feet from the door. And he leaps in the air and catches some often as not. Could a bright colored collar cover help protect birds from Luna? We had to try!
Now you can see the dog yourself and hear the owner speak about the success on this Youtube video.
Hint: It worked! The dog stopped being able to catch birds. They flew away just a bit faster and were saved. I have to admit that I was 1) gratified and 2) a little surprised at just how well it worked. How fun! Now whenever I drive past her yard, I get a big smile on my face. So glad she asked for Birdsbesafe's help!

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."

Today, in Vermont, we are past our peak foliage color display, and the first snow fell in the White Mountains last night in nearby NH. Many species of birds have already migrated through, on their way to wintering locations to the south.
A few weeks ago, we saw this unidentified Thrush species, with a few other birds, grazing over a period of days as they fed for the long flights to come. And today, there were Dark-eyed Juncos and a small flock of these Sparrows.

UPDATE: Oct. 20. We are seeing slow shipping times for individual packages to Australia and New Zealand. If your tracking shows no change for a week, be reassured your packaging is still traveling towards you, but slowly.
The postage cost is very high, and the shipping times too slow. More news, as we know it.
