Ornithology 101


What do you get when you combine a snowy morning, tons of sunflower seeds and our very first non-fiction book checked out from the kiddie section at the library?

A very happy Claire who spent the morning counting birds at our feeder and marveling that her feathered friends had their very own book! Is she too young to begin studying for an ornithology degree? The book we checked out was "The Pebble First Guide to Songbirds" and it contained nearly all the birds in our area with little factoids about each species. There were a few of our frequent visitors missing -- Junco, Tufted Titmouse, Red-Breasted Woodpecker -- so I might have to improvise a guidebook of my own one of these days.


  1. Testing Testing, new format, fixed comments?

  2. Gina I love the new look but it's not clear where to comment,I clicked on the 1 comment link to get here.That being said,the pics are great,I love the look of the three photos in the middle. Oh I forgot to tell you that my feeding station traffic picked up! We have 4 cardinals that are regulars now,however they are not perching on the new feeders but eating what the squirrels drop on the ground.

  3. If you click on the post itself (like how I usually link through FB) it's embedded in the bottom. If you browse the site directly, you click on the comment thing just like you did. Let me see if I can come up with something better.

  4. oh my God, a picture of Claire with messy hair!
