In Order To See Birds

A  L  O  H  A !
Sky, Home to Birds
"The main dangers 
in this life are the 
people who want to 
change everything...
or nothing."

it is necessary to 
become a part 
of the silence."

Never allow yourself to 
be made a victim.

of your life; 
define yourself."

Lady Astor was a wise woman, as are you, my friend. I like that the sky is home to the birds.

Hello, nice collection of birds and images. I like the sounds of the Red-winged Blackbird.
Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Bird songs and squaks are part of a beautiful day. And who is to say that a starling's call is not delightful to someone?

I see a few robins around the house for 9 months out of the year. I had an invasion the other day. I had around 200 robins in the front yard all day long. No, I didn't think to take a picture.

'Become part of the silence' any birder will confirm this is true 😊 How wonderful the red winged blackbird, I have never seen one before.. sounds sweet too.

Those red winged blackbirds can be fiercely territorial during nesting season, I've found. The cormorant is my favourite.
