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.

Where have all the April showers gone?

Once more,  Saturday was beautiful.  People were finally able to get outside and do a little bit of yard work, raking, cleaning the salt and gravel off their lawns left by the snow plows, thinking about spring planting time, and just enjoying the day.  Then came Sunday, Monday and now Tuesday.  The snow has returned covering us in a blanket of white once again.  My red maple in the side yard has burst forth with tiny red flowers, the daffodils have poked their heads up and to their surprise, find it cold and wet once more. 
My money is on the daffodils winning out in the end.
