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.

Spring has arrived.

It was quite a struggle, but spring is surely here to stay.  The snow has melted back to just a few patches in the woods.  There are faint areas of green erupting from the soil and the daffodils are showing more of their sunny heads.  Four does appeared in the fields yesterday around dusk; three of them were roundly pregnant and the fourth doe was smaller and perhaps a late fawn from last year.  They spent over an hour tasting the new grass shoots, obviously enjoying their dinner.
