The Cardinal Bird Feeder – What Works Best?

The intention of a cardinal bird feeder, of course, would be to attract the cardinal. This bird, of course, is probably the single most popular bird for backyard bird watchers. However, to the dismay of many, there really is no cardinal feeder per se. But, the bird certainly has both feeder and seed preferences. Let’s take a look!

First, what doesn’t work that well.

The tube feeder is quite popular. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking it a favorite of the cardinal. I’ve been watching birds for years and years and I can tell you with complete certainty that this is not your best choice for the cardinal. He has virtually no neck and is forced to turn his whole body sideways to eat from a tube. In addition, he’s just a smidgen too big for most perches.

Some people will advise you to add a tray to the bottom. Granted, you will see the bird more often if you do this. Just keep in mind that Droll Yankees trays fit Droll Yankees tube feeders; Aspects trays fit Aspects tube feeders; Bird Quest trays fit Bird Quest tube feeders.

Do you know which brand you have?

Also, keep in mind that trays attract lots of other birds like grackles and starlings. If these birds visit your tube feeder, you won’t see many cardinals (or any other birds for that matter). Keep in mind the purpose of a tube feeder is to provide for small birds like the tufted titmouse and Carolina chickadee.

Add a tray, in come the medium and large birds, away go the small birds-just like that, you’ve defeated the purpose of the tube.

So what does work?

A proper cardinal bird feeder is any feeder whose design accommodates the cardinal’s preference to “bend at the hip” or not at all when feeding. You want a feeder that doesn’t force the bird to turn its body. A basic hopper feeder is a great choice as a cardinal bird feeder. So is any fly-through bird feeder (a fly-through feeder is open on all sides and has ample space). Also, platform feeders on the ground are ideal cardinal feeders.

There are manufacturers of feeders who describe their product as “cardinal feeder.” The no-no is one such example. Though this feeder does accommodate the cardinal, be careful! Many bird feeders do not do what the manufacturer claims.

The Droll Yankees squirrel proof feeder called the whipper is designed to be a cardinal feeder. The curved perch is a fantastic innovation that accommodates the bird perfectly. The Brome Care “squirrel buster” squirrel proof feeder, with its detachable ring, also serves the bird, though the bird does not appear as comfortable on this feeder as he does on the whipper (make no mistake, though, the Brome Care Product is equal and even superior to the Droll Yankees product in many ways).


What seed should you feed the cardinal? Hands down, safflower. This is a bitter tasting seed that squirrels, grackles and starlings tend not to eat.

If you don’t have these pests floating around, any quality bird seed will do. Black oil sunflower seed and sunflower hearts (chips) are favorites of the cardinal. He’ll eat most blends, too but don’t use big box blends–they’re full of filler that birds don’t eat.

I’ve seen cardinals eat fruit–you’ll need a fruit feeder for this.

So, what is my favorite cardinal bird feeder?

You know, my advise to bird watchers desiring to attract cardinals to “get back to basics.” I recommend either a wooden hopper feeder or a fly-through platform feeder serve as their cardinal bird feeder.

If you follow this advise and are patient, I promise that you’ll be visited by this beautiful bird year round!

Jobs For 14-Year-Olds – Jobs For Teens You Can Choose From

Do you have a 14-year-old at home?

Are they driving you crazy because they keep asking you for money and seem to just sit around and talk on the phone? Do you wish there were more jobs for kids out there? Especially for YOUR 14-year old?!

At a young age, kids are expected to be in school to study and build a solid foundation for their education. We are told that education prepares children for adulthood by giving them structure, deadlines, rules and socialization with their peers.

However, at age 14, you can already start exploring your horizons and study, plus do other things. Yet, instead of devoting your time to just playing, why not try to find the best teen jobs you can this summer?

Yes, you’ve heard it right. You can find part time jobs for kids. By this, you do not only spend your free time wisely, but you earn money too. In fact, taking good jobs for young teens helps teach them several lessons in life that they will never learn within the confines of the classroom.

However, if you do not yet have any idea about jobs for kids under 15, here is a list to help you and give you ideas:

1. Babysitting. This is one of the most common jobs for this age group. I babysat when I was 14-years-old. You do not need so much technical knowledge on this. If you have younger brothers or sisters, you might already know how to babysit. You can ask your relatives if they have some kids for you to tend. If not, you may ask your friends. Make sure you know who you are working with.

Several opportunities exist for babysitting certification – giving your son or daughter credible learning experience – and a reference for their completion of the class. Local schools are the best reference for where to find these classes.

2. Movie theater ticket taker. You can also ask movie theaters near you if they need people who will collect the tickets for the movie. This is so simple. You just have to get one ticket for every person who comes in. No sweat!

3. Voice over in radio stations. There are some radio stations that are producing radio dramas or comedy. Sometimes their people can’t copy the exact voice of a young teen or somewhere near that age for their character. Ask if such job could possibly be given to you.

4. Assistant Cashier. If you have a business owned by your parents, a good job for a teen is to be an assistant to the head cashier. Just help the head casher count the money needed for change or the cash collected for the entire day. You just have to do simple math to work best at this. Most modern cash registers are easily error proof when it comes to being accurate in your money count.

5. Paper boy still rates high on the list of perspective jobs for teens who don’t drive yet. Your local paper will be able to identify an open route for you that might be close to or in your neighborhood.

6. Does your local grocery store need people to bag groceries? These jobs are coveted by most, so if you go in person, make sure you take a resume and have 2-3 jobs listed on it that look like you can take on responsibility – Even walking the dog next door counts if you were paid and showed up regularly and can get your neighbor to give you a reference.

7. Build a lemonade stand and sell lemonade. Or baked goods-Cookies are GREAT (no kidding-Tony Tiger GGRRREEEAAAAEATTTTT!).

8. Be in business for yourself and walk dogs – 3 dogs a day, 5 times a week will net you about $75.00 a week if you do it right and the only real expense you’ll have are doggie bags. Or bathe dogs, or pick up after dogs in back yards.

9. Find something people don’t like to do and offer your services.

10. Wash cars – set up a car wash in your own car porch area. If you live in multiple housing check with the landlord to make sure it is OK first!

11. Get a rolling ice cooler and a bell and sell ice cream. Check with the city to make sure you can do this and aren’t violating any rules first! Your parents may need to get you a business license first.

12. Check with your local city office to see if you can get a curb painting kit and paint numbers on curbs for houses. In our city you can pick up a kit from the city for $100.00, complete with everything and use it over and over again. Make sure there is an adult to help you get started with this one!

13. Have you been helping around the house with lawn mowing and yard clean-up – raking leaves? If so then make yourself a colorful poster, get copies, with your name and phone and hand it out to your friends and neighbors.

These 13 are only some of the best teen jobs ideas you can choose from. Just keep in mind that you are doing this not to earn a living, but just to get extra cash. Try to also put in mind that these are only part time jobs for 14-year-olds. In other words, no one expects these to become your lifelong career.

As a teenager, you might be thrilled with the fact that you are earning money! However, these summer jobs for young teens, as the term suggests, are only good for summer. When summer is over, then school takes priority in your life again. trust your parents when they tell you that you’ll have lots of time to earn a living!

Aside from these 13 best teen jobs, there are other part time jobs for young teens that might fit you best. However, in the end, remember that you are still young, and you must not overwork. Just enjoy the experience and make the most of it.

Now, instead of throwing your 14-year-old out the door out of sheer frustration, help them get moving with these part time job ideas for teens!

Nike Dual-Sided Yoga Mat Review

If there’s one brand people associate with sports it has got to be Nike. They make pretty much everything related, and most are pretty good. Take their running line-up for example; the lunar series receives worldwide praise for their design and comfort. Not to mention the clothing range going from high to high, the 2011 collection being especially impressive. When a company with such a track record comes out with a yoga mat, one has to wonder: how good is it? Time to find out.



Whatever happens this product is special by DNA. The dual sided mat does exactly what you’d expect it to do, offering two sides. Each side contains a different texture, which theoretically makes a difference depending on the sports you practise. However in real life I found no major reasons to prefer one side to the other, so I will make no future mention of this in the remainder of this review.

The Nike dual sided yoga mat is definitely a skull turner, partly thanks to its incredible slim design of just 3mm thick. What also helps is the texture on both sides, what Nike claims will help improve the grip – a claim I full heartedly believe. The mat also comes with a handy strap construction for easy transportation.

The dimensions are 66″ long and 24″ wide. I found this to be exactly the right size for me, and I’m pretty tall being close to 6 ft 1. Odds are this mat will be the perfect fit.

Overall the design is pretty satisfying. The little Nike logo in the corner will satisfy brand watchers, while the textures give it a distinct look. Although its radical design will definitely find some opposing winds.


In use

The Nike dual sided yoga mat promises ultimate grip and practicality, two claims I found to be true in use. This mat definitely offers the grip when you need it. Down dogs, hovers, push-ups and triangle poses are all easy to pull off, something not all mats can claim. The practicality is also a given thanks to the strings that come with it. Yoga instructors will find this mat a practical companion wherever they go.

Good points aside, the product definitely has a fair share of issues. One morning I had built up a hefty sweat and the mat failed to absorb it, creating a sudden halt to the grip. It’s also very thin and sometimes hurts my knees in curtain positions, a big problem for a product that claims to be a yoga mat. Finally, after a month of use, the dual sided yoga mat is already showing early signs of wear and tear. The glue between the two sides is letting go around the edges, potentially fatal.



Nike has delivered a product that can best be described as a mixed bag of pleasure and pure disgust. The yoga mat is definitely good-looking, practical and has the perfect dimensions. 3 points most mats already fall short of. Then there’s the flipside; a product that offers almost no cushioning and already shows wear after a few weeks of use. Ultimately the lack of comfort and durability makes this a dodgy purchase for yogis, what a shame.

How To Date Your Fred Bear Bow

Since we have the opportunity to sell a lot of different items through our eBay Drop Off Store, certain things start to stick out that seem to sell extremely well. One item that sticks out are the vintage BEAR Recurve Bows.

Recently on an out of town trip we stopped by an antique store like we usually do and saw this recurve bow in the corner. Since we were already somewhat familiar with how well bows have sold from selling them for a client we naturally gravitated to it. It looked to be in excellent condition and came with a quiver and 3 different sets of arrows. The asking price was $100.00 and we ultimately got all of it for $75.00.

Based on the dating procedures listed below we determined that this was a Fred Bear Kodiak Recurve bow from 1965 in excellent condition. It was a 60″ bow with a 44# pull.

After we got the bow to our store we noticed that inside the big quiver was a smaller single quiver. Based on a light embossed marking on this smaller, leather quiver that we pulled out we were able to date it to the late 1940’s.

We decided to break this up into 3 different auctions and started all three at $9.99. The results of the auctions are listed at the end of this article.



There are several features and changes that were made to the bear bows over the years that will help narrow the age of your bow or your potential investment.

1. The Serial Number: These bows usually have, what appears to be a hand inscription on one of the limbs that gives a serial number along with the length and pull weight of the bow. This serial number works very well for dating Bear Bows from 1965-1969 when the first digit of the serial number is the year of manufacture.

For example, a serial number of 5L212 would be a 1965 Bow.

Prior to 1965, the serial numbers for all Bear bows were started over every month, making these bows almost impossible to date by serial number alone. The “K” series of serial numbers (for example KZ9672) were started in 1970.

2. Patent Mark: Most of the BEAR Bows we have sold have the logo and the US Patents printed on it along with the date of CANADA 1953. This date that is printed on all bows made between 1953 and 1972 is simply the date of the patent for a working recurve limb and has nothing to do with the actual model year.

3. Decals & Silkscreening: In 1948 the small Running Bear decal was first and then was replaced by the large Standing Bear decal in mid-1953. The large Standing Bear decal also has the words “Glass Powered Bow” under the Standing Bear.

The large Standing Bear decal was used until 1955 when it was replaced with silk-screening the identification on the bows. By 1956 the silk-screening appeared on all bows.

4. All Wood vs Laminate: If your bow is ALL wood (no laminations of any kind) then your bow had to be made before the mass productions beginning in 1949.

  • If the ALL wood bow has a stamp that reads “Bear Products” in some form it would have been made before the early to mid 40’s.
  • If it is stamped “Bear Archery” it would have been made AFTER the early-mid 40’s and BEFORE 1949.
  • Also wooden bows with a small “Running Bear” decal can be dated to 1948

5. The Leather Grip: ALL Bear bows had leather grips until 1959. In 1959, the Kodiak Special removed the leather grip and in 1961 the Kodiak did the same, as well as the Grizzly in 1964.

6. The Coin Medallion: Beginning in 1959 all Bear bows had a coin medallion of one type of metal or another. Below are the approx date ranges for the type of coin used.

Copper Coin – 1959

Aluminum – 1960-1961

Pewter – 1962

Brass – 1963 – 1970

Nickel-Silver – 1971-1972

ALL coins were flush with the wood until 1972. In late 1972 the coin was raised above the surface of the bow and came in both gold and chrome covered plastic and are still used in Bear bows today.

7. Manufacturer Location: in 1978 Bear moved all manufacturing and offices to Gainesville, Florida. If your bow shows Gainesville on it then it was made after 1978

8. Model Of The Bow: Check the Model of the bow. Below is a yearly production chart for the most popular Bear Bows.

Wood Handle Take-Down 1969-1972

Wood C-Riser Victor Custom 1973-1975

Magnesium Handle Take-Down A-B-C 1971-1978

Kodiak Static Recurve 1950-1953

Kodiak Recurve 1954-1966

Super Kodiak 1967-1976

Grizzly Static Recurve 1949-1957

Grizzly Recurve 1958-1978

Super Magnum 48 1966-1976

Kodiak Magnum 52″ 1961-1977

Kodiak Hunter 58″ and 60″ 1967-1977

Tamerlane 1962-1968

Tamerlane HC-30 1965-1967

Tamerlane HC-300 1968-1972

Kodiak Special 1955-1967

Temujin 1968-1970

Tarter 1968-1972

Victor Patriot 1973-1977

Victor 1972

Polar (recurve) 1957-1970

Alaskan (leather grip semi-recurve) 1959-1961

Alaskan (recurve) 1966-1970

Tigercat 1964-1978

Bearcat 1964-1971

Black Bear 1972-1978

Little Bear 1965-1978

With this information you should be able to get really close to dating your Bear Bow if not pin-pointing it to the year.

If you are looking to price your bow I would suggest first logging into your eBay account and do a Completed Auction Search on the general keywords that match your bow, i.e. Bear Grizzly Recurve and see what has sold in the past 30 days.


Our eBay Results: Within 6 hours of listing our 1965 Bear Bow by itself starting at $9.99 it had already reached $152.50 which was exciting but based on our research not surprising. What was surprising was that it stayed at $152.50 for the next 6 days. On the last day with 8 minutes left it was up to $182.50 with over 40 watchers. Usually on these types of auctions we tend to refresh and refresh and refresh the auction all the way to the end to watch the bidding but we got busy writing more listings and forgot. When we did remember to go back and check the auction it was over and had ended at $282.55

The other 2 auctions for the quivers and arrows sold for a total of $80.00. So our initial $75.00 Investment at an antique store ended in $362.55 in sales. That was almost a $300.00 profit (minus gas and eBay fees of course).
