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.

Chickens, chickens, chickens

David and I dove headlong into raising chickens.  We brought home eight little bundles of fluff that promise to grow up to be Golden Lace Wyandotte hens, pretty, friendly, and easy keepers.   

What we noticed almost immediately is that they grow and change almost overnight.  What a treat to watch them develop into young chickens.

They are now fully established in the chicken coop and enjoy exploring their outdoor run for bugs, greens, and anything that moves.  With all the added space, they love running and flying around for exercise.  Stay tuned for more exciting developments.
