    Synonymous With Joy

    I love birds with their unique and colorful feathers. They always lift my spirit whenever I watch them soar high up in the sky. To me they are synonymous with joy. Each color reminding me of a different quality of emotion. Whenever I spy a blue bird , a rare sighting indeed...

    Daddy And Me

    Every Sunday I get up before the sun and drive over to my parents house. Every week we take a 4 mile hike to do some serious birdwatching. The only thing that can stop us is snow!

    Chirp Chirp

    I like bird watching. I think it's kind of entertaining and fun to sit on my porch, rocking in my rocking chair and watching the birds fly around, eat their feed and chirp their hearts away. Birds are very beautiful creatures and bring such a great deal of 'singing' to the world...
