Deer sleep in the woods at Songbird Prairie

We enjoy seeing the animals in their natural habitat. These two spent the night and most of the day here resting. We feed them apples and bread. It was so comical first thing in the morning the squirrels were running around and the doe raised up her head as if to say "really you two, I'm trying to sleep here" then she put her head back down.  Come to see them. We would love to have you! 877-766-4273

Songbird Prairie is participating in the Backyard Bird Count Feb 18th-21st

Feb 13, 2011

Take a picture of the birds in your back yard for 15 minutes then you can count them better!

You may find it helpful to print a regional tally sheet so you have a list of birds you’re likely to see in your area in February.

Get your check list at this link


  • · Count birds at any location for at LEAST 15 minutes—or more if you wish. Later you’ll be asked to record the amount of time you spent watching.

  • · Write down only the

highest number of each species you see together at any one time to avoid counting the same birds more than once. For example, if you see 8 cardinals as you start your count period, then later you see 12, and later still you see 3, you’ll only report 12–the highest number you saw together at once. Please do not add the numbers together.

  • · You’ll submit your data on a new checklist for each day you participate in the count. It’s OK if you count at the same location each day—submit a new list for each day.

  • · You’ll submit a new checklist for each

new location.

You can submit more than one checklist on a given day if you count at more than one site.


When you’re ready to enter your checklist(s), go to the GBBC website at and click on the big “Submit your checklists” button at the top. You won’t see this button until 7:00 AM the Friday the GBBC begins. Everything you need to know will be clear on the web page as you enter your information. If you’d like a preview of what you’ll see, keep reading.!/Eastern_Bluebird

Happy Birding!

Songbirds and Spas

Jan 28, 2011

Catch up on the latest girlie news in a luxury bed and breakfast with your feet up, wrapped in fluffy robes and slippers, swapping surprising stories as professional therapists transform you into glorious goddesses before hitting the town. Sounds good doesn’t it?

Spa pampering packages allow you to get away with the girls in a more relaxing and indulgent setting than a busy restaurant – or combine the two for a girlie weekend of pure fun and pure relaxation.

Pampering spa treatments allow fun-loving chicks to unwind, leaving refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to slip into heels for a glamorous evening. The option of a soothing massage is also on the cards when heads aren’t so fab the next morning and tired chicks can indulge themselves once more – because you’re worth it!

Girls prefer our tranquil location to accommodate smaller groups of ladies for a more relaxed spa getaway. 877.766.4273 Girlfriend Package

Barred Owl Looking for breakfast @ Songbird Prairie Bed and Breakfast

November 3, 2010

This morning I heard a different bird sound and it was a barred owl! He moved his head up down and all around looking for mice and chipmunks in the woods. He stayed on the branch for several minutes as if he was at a photo shoot. What a hoot! I enjoyed watching his beautiful feathers blow in the wind.

A Better Way to Stay Songbird Prairie Bed and Breakfast

A Better Way to Stay
A Grassroots Campaign for the B&B Industry

September-October Updates
PAII has coined the phrase “The Better Way to Stay”. This campaign is phenomenal and it is poised to launch with a website dedicated to showing the industry all the components of the campaign.  This temporary site will soon be taken down and will become a resource room for innkeepers to learn about the campaign, its supporters and its tools.  Look forward to learning about the launch of this site any day now.  

Many travelers are finding out that B&B’s give such personal service that even the finest hotels are not able to accommodate! The relaxation that comes from staying two or more days at a B&B cannot be matched at a hotel.  Owners of B&B’s care for you like friends, yet give you privacy at the same time.  Many have acreage with places to walk, talk and reconnect. Find your perfect place and make a reservation today. 877.766.4273 Read our reviews and find a Better Way to Stay!
