Wintertime brings challenges for birds who live in the North Carolina mountains as they seek shelter to stay warm and forage for food among the bare trees and bushes. Show your holiday spirit by finding the perfect gift for the bird watcher on your Christmas list, or by showing a little love to our backyard friends. Erecting a birdhouse or feeder will draw a flurry of color and activity to your backyard this winter. During the snowy season, the birds are especially grateful for a helping hand!
|Happy Birds Bring Joy to Your Yard|
Outdoor Bird Company, at 946 Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville, offers a wide array of great gift ideas for bird enthusiasts, including bird ornaments, calendars, wind chimes, clocks, and even toys. This locally owned shop is Asheville's go to spot for backyard birding supplies.

By staying at an Asheville vacation rental cabin, you'll have opportunities that would never fly at a hotel. What good is a yard in winter, you ask? Besides the wonderful wildlife you might encounter, especially North Carolina's bright blue jays and cardinals, a yard also means Fido can come along on your vacation! Most of Carolina Morning's luxury mountain vacation cabins are pet-friendly, because we love our dogs too!
|Enjoy Treetop Scenery at Fabulous Red Wolf|
Plus, with a view like the one you'll find at Eagle's Landing, you're sure to see more than just chickadees -- there's hawks, owls, and eagles soaring the sky. Or if a majestic view right from the living room is more your speed, a spread like Red Wolf is perfect for you. This luxurious log cabin is perched up on Burney Mountain in Fletcher, North Carolina.
