I saw a mockingbird get caught in our spring-breaks-and-back-to-winter we had yestereday (snow on ground, 20s, etc.)

Mockingbirds are something we should not see in my area but with global climate change we are seeing them regularly here.

Normally I do, but DH didn't fix my tiller, so I'm being obstinate and not planting one. I am going to plant some tomatoes and a couple other veggies in those topsy turvy thingies and hang them off my deck instead of flowers. Should be interesting.

Yes they are so cool to watch!I saw a flock of 10 fly right over my head and they were tree top low so I got a good look they seemed to have been coming up from the lake next door and I hope no one was shooting at them I thought I heard a muffled shot right before they flew up!!

There's Bird Talk, Bird Watcher's Digest and Birder's World. Those are the only ones I know about.

But I still prefer Birds and Blooms.

Well yesterday afternoon I saw 3 flocks of snow geese leaving and heard the trumpeter swans down on the lake making lots of noise.They usually dont go far and for long but I think they do leave for a while .They are always the first water birds back in spring so not sure where they re wintering?

We have one we've never subscribed to either, it's called 'The Upholsterer'(my DH is one!) and started coming a couple of years ago...says it's £2.50p on the front but we've never paid.

I get the BTO, and the RSPB magazines and we also get The National Trust one.

Arlene,
you had asked about birdwatchers digest, and birder's world.....I like birdwatchers digest better. It is in sort of the same format as readers digest and has some personal type stories, not just factual stuff. Stuff on travelling, backyards,equipment reviews, getting kids to appreciate nature, etc. Some articles about hummingbirds in this months issue. Birder's world is ok too but smaller in content. We really only subscribed to Birder's world because of a school fund raiser.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I love the library sales. Ours has a four day sale and everyday the books get cheaper. We also have a weekend flea market that sells a lot of books. My daughter emailed this weekend asking to go as soon as she gets home from college so she can get a supply of books for the summer. Only two weeks and all my girls will be home for the summer!

You're not a geek. Our library has a huge sale like that every spring and fall. Ours is Friday night. Some paperbacks are 10 cents. I'll be there.

I don't get any mags anymore... they just pile up and I never read them. Still haven't sent in my B&B mag subscription and I keep saying I'm going to.

I saw the same birds yesterday as the day before. Another hummer showed up but left right away... hmmmmm maybe I should check my water?

Hi All! I've been stuck on the same threads for weeks now and decided to go back to each group and see what I've been missing and I've been missing ALOT!!!!

I used to receive Birds & Blooms a long time ago but kept every one of them because I'm a packrat like that. Received an invitation in the mail just this last week to re-join and am sending it in soon!

My kids have always collected rocks and it used to just drive me crazy because we'd come home with bags of them and they were just ordinary rocks. I like to hang on to ones with holes in them... have several and was going to make a necklass but it'd be too heavy for my neck!

You all have a Great Day... SUN is shining here & I am HAPPY!

I have to laugh about the rocks..I move mine too.And they better not get left behind.Even My 125 gallon fish tank is done with the rocks I have found..He He it costs more to move that, then it does to move the Harley.Thankfully hubby like rocks too.

The hummers are amazing here.There are hundreds of them.When you work in the garden it is like being surrounded by little fairies.

You muight be right..Maybe be we are long lost cousins :)

I used to subscribe to bird & blooms, my hubby and I both love the magazine. (He always finds the acorn first though, darn it!) I got behind on my reading so I'm catching up on back issues right now. I plan to subscribe again in the future.

I get Birds and Blooms, Birds and Blooms Extra, and Organic Gardening. :)

Jeremiah 29:11,13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ...and you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
