Are you fascinated by birds, their ability to escape the confines of earth with flight, their marvelous color patterns and not in the least, their song?

Have you complied a life list over the years? What are your favorites among those birds you have seen and heard?

Having watched and studied birds most of my life and compiled a substantial life list from various parts of the country and beyond, I have my favorites amongst the group and they are now prominently displayed on the wall in my great room as seen on the right.

It might even be fun to include your state bird in the center of that group. I am in the process of including all the state birds in my collection. Enter the gallery by clicking on any of the images or on the gallery link above, and see what you like.

The eagle has landed

As I was sitting in the sunroom today under a cloudy sky enjoying a luncheon salad, a dark, brown shape obscured my view of the sky.  As I stood up to see what it was, a large adult bald eagle flew overhead and as he crossed the pasture, he pirouetted and made a steep dive towards the ground.  He landed with a bounce and walked over to a pile of wet loose grass.  He picked through it, selecting the best parts in his beak and once satisfied, took off easily into the air and headed towards the pond.  It is time to do some nest maintenance for the new arrivals.
