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.

Traffic around the feeders

Monday as I looked out the window where the feeders hang in the large honeysuckle bush, there clustered among the top branches were six Red-winged blackbirds.  Perhaps they were youngsters from this year and finally realized they were past due to leave for warmer climes and just searching for a place to rest before moving on.
