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.

Homes for rent, inquire within

For the last couple of days, I have had a bevy of bluebirds migrate through my fields on their way to warmer climes. These birds consist mostly of males, but some females accompany them. They fly about visiting each and every bluebird house in the field. Some just sit on the top surveying their surroundings, others peek inside to inspect the accommodations. Some males will chase others off a house that they are particularly interested in and then just as quickly move on to another house. To my observation, these are birds that are preparing for the future in that they are scouting out prospective nesting sites for next spring. I have seen this occurrence each autumn at this time. Save travels all. See you again next spring!
