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.

Snow tracks

There are several interesting things about winter that reveal a different perspective, looking into the woods with its curtain of green lifted. Check out the topography, the lay of the land, hidden secrets beneath rocks and boulders and then there are the travels of animals in your neighborhood revealed as tracks in the snow. It is almost like reading a box or rewinding back to past events. Above by the stone are the tracks of our resident fox rambling about following his nose looking for something to eat. At the bottom of the picture are the tracks of a snowshoe rabbit heading in the opposite direction. As far as I could tell, they were there at different times and did not meet each other.
