Clementine Oriole Feeder

Senior digital editor Lori Vanover says, “I’ve been admiring this oriole feeder for a while. One of my neighbors has it hanging in front of her house and it’s so cute! I love to watch orioles as they migrate through our area in spring. In my yard, I also have spotted red-bellied woodpeckers eating oranges, and gray catbirds love the grape jelly.”

Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Lantern

Associate editor Molly Jasinski says, “I go camping with a group of friends every summer, but I’m the only one who always ends up with all the mosquito bites! I recently purchased this Thermacell mosquito repellant lantern after seeing over 8,000 5 star reviews. I can’t wait to try it out during my next camping trip.”

Certified Peanut Free Bird Seed

Content director Kirsten Schrader writes, “My young son has a severe peanut allergy, so we must be extra careful about what we feed the birds. Store-bought suet is definitely not an option for us anymore, but I was happy to discover the certified peanut-free birdseed from Wallis Johns. It’s one of the only peanut-free birdseed options I have found on the market. Not only is it the best option for anyone with a peanut allergy to use in their backyards, especially if peanut-allergic kids frequently play outside, it’s a good alternative for schools and daycares to use for art projects in place of traditional birdseed, which might have traces of tree nuts or peanuts.”

Water Wiggler

Kirsten Schrader says, “The Water Wiggler was recently recommended to me by our bird experts as an excellent way to attract more birds during the summer months. You can add it to any birdbath you already own. It creates continuous ripples in the water—birds love that, but the mosquitoes don’t!”
