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.

March Nor'easters

I just knew February was not going to be the last of winter, even if the ground was bare and the temperatures balmy.  March is still roaring like a lion (thanks MGM!).   I have little lanes carved out to reach the bird feeders which I have had to clear several times a day as it continually snows, even if just a little bit.  We are still feeding the chickadees, juncos, blue jays, several house finches, purple finches, titmice, goldfinches and a family of crows.   I have noticed that the goldfinches are scrappy and will chase off the juncos at every turn.  At least it is daylight savings time and we are on the downhill run to spring, (my favorite time of the year).
