February is National Bird-feeding Month! In celebration, we wanted to share some tips to enhance your bird-watching experience at Meadowood.
Here on our sprawling, 131-acre campus, we’re fortunate to host an abundance of wildlife. Residents of our senior living community in Worcester, PA, have spotted all kinds of creatures, from foxes to deer to rabbits, when they’re out walking our trails or exploring the Meadowood Nature Preserve.
Of all of the fascinating varieties of wildlife, though, there’s one species that’s very near and dear to the Meadowood mission: our diverse bird population. We are a true bird-loving community. Bird feeders abound, and unlike at some other communities, residents are free to feed their feathered friends, which are frequent guests of balconies, patios and personal gardens.
We’ve even shown our devotion to our campus bird population by naming many of our residential buildings after birds. A few examples are Robin Ridge, Bluebird Crossing and Pheasant Run.
Even the four buildings in The Grove, our brand-new expansion, are named after feathered creatures: Oriole, Mallard, Heron and Goldfinch. And the floor plans at The Grove are named after the graceful trees and flowers — Chestnut, Birch, Beech and Aster — in which birds love to make their nests. What’s more, the Meadowood logo is a goose, symbolizing the need for us all to stay in a flock for support and safety.
Yes, birds are everywhere at Meadowood, so if you’re a beginning birder, here are a few tips to make it easier for you to enjoy their spectacular sights and sounds.
