Backyard Birding

Lucky me, I’m off to Colorado on Monday — later to Michigan. Hope to see some new birds this year. Here are a few from previous trips as well as from the “backyard” (really my front yard!).

    You share your space with so many beautiful creatures. I bet the kitties are trying to decide on the best way to hunt down some breakfast 🙂

    have a wonderful trip/vacation, Linda…and those pictures of birds are very very beautiful. I once went to a bird watching camp as a kid…but my interest only stayed for a few months back then…maybe I should look into it again…
