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.

Sun power

Since I had solar panels installed on my roof, the sun has been very accommodating with my electricity bill.   Not only has it helped my pocketbook, but staying off the grid as much as possible has been a benefit to the environment in some small part.  It seems even on cloudy or overcast days, the sun rays seep through and land on the panels.  Now if the sun would just melt the snow cover on the fields, the birds and small creatures would be pleased.
