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.

Turkey Trot

Well, Saturday blew in nasty; snow, sleet and driving rain with a strong wind that drove most of the remaining maple leaves out of the yard.  The temperature did not help either as it was hovering around 32 to 36 degrees.   However Saturday was the day the turkey hens decided to return at about 30 strong.  They did not seem to mind the weather as they rumaged around in the vegetable garden, but before long filed back into the woods at the edge of the pasture.
