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.

Weather front change

No matter where you live, changes in weather come and go. There might be a change in temperature, a feeling of the barometric pressure rising or falling with an ache in your knees, or the wonderful scent in the air after a spring rain. Animals also notice these changes; birds migrate ahead of a storm, squirrels feverishly stash nuts as the temperature drops, and elephants will follow the scent of rain. For all these types of changes, they tend to remain invisible. However, once in a while if you look up in the sky, you can see a weather front arrive. The other day started out overcast when all of a sudden the sun shown brightly in a cloudless sky. I was able to capture this on film so as to share it with you here.
