2020 Holiday Shipping is No Laughing Matter.
Be Wise… Shop Now for unique birdhouse gifts, bird feeders and cool birdbaths for real lasting joy!
Online shopping has taken on new heights since spring and the pandemic. Aren’t you just sick to death of hearing about it? But carriers have been inundated with volume so this holiday (unlike past years) definitely raises some concerns.
For the most part, USPS, UPS and FedEx are doing a great job all things considered. But since everything is relative, there’s always a small percentage of issues with either a wrong delivery address, damage & breakage or just plain loss. And this really stinks if it just happens to be your holiday birdhouse gift to someone special.
The struggle is real!
So this year, we’re literally begging folks to shop early. Not only for the best selection from a small boutique of curated birding and garden gifts, but also for the very best level of customer service should any possible issues arise with your shipment.
And those possibilities are quite real… frustrating, stressful, time consuming and just plain aggravating because the shipper has no control over such issues 🙁 It takes time, diligence, major persistence and sometimes even re-sending the birdhouse or bird feeder again. If you wait until December 10th to order your gift, there’s simply not enough time to rectify any issues should one arise.
The little ditty below offers an idea of where things stand with holiday birdhouse and bird feeder gifts and anything else you may be planning to order online)!

Actually a full face mask that’s interactive- so how fun is this hummingbird feeder! From a whole new perspective, sprites will feed and dance right before your eyes. The idea came to fruition several years ago, and after a few iterations (including a hole and extra long straw to sip your cocktail) humm-viewer was brought to market. Folks who’ve purchased these unique hummingbird feeders have given some excellent feedback. Truly a swell gift for any nature buff or hummingbird enthusiast! The hit of any backyard gathering as well.
The mask comes choc full of stuff… though the party’s not included!
- bulb for easy filling of tubes
- cleaning brushes
- microfiber cloth for mask cleaning
- easy directions
- cloth bag to store the feeder
- extra long straw for your favorite nectar! (beverage of choice)
As a side note: This past spring, the masks were produced sans the hummingbird feeder and offered to local healthcare workers when masks were in short supply. Kudos to the makers for quickly responding and adapting to the pandemic in a meaningful and helpful way.
Here in Atlanta, male hummingbirds started south about one week ago. Females and juveniles will be going soon. Keep feeders fresh and filled even after hummingbirds are gone. Stragglers from further north may very well need to refuel for the long journey. And it’s a total myth that if you leave your hummingbird feeder up too late, the sprites won’t leave. Utter nonsense as nature tells them when it’s time to go!
And last: We’re begging for you to shop earlier for holiday this year. Not only for the best selection from a small boutique, but to get your gifts on time! Shipping/transit times were very different BC (before covid, remember?). Carriers are already at capacity with the steep increase of online ordering. So please do think twice and order soon… in case your package accidentally takes a trip around the moon!
