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.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!!!

We had a beautiful day here yesterday in WV , sunny and 70 degrees . But today it is cloudy to partly sunny and 50 degrees . Tomorrow we are suppose to get our first snow of the season 3-5 inches possible . So I made sure to fill up my bird feeder in the front yard yesterday and will fill the backyard feeder today . So my little birdies have something to eat too : ) I have fed them all spring , summer and fall and I enjoy watching them all so very much !
I have had bluejays , nuthatches , titmouse , dark-eyed juncos , downy woodpeckers , and I believe yellow finch . and occasionally a pilated woodpecker makes it way though every day , but not at my feeder . I need to get them some suet . I am sure there are others I have not mentioned too .

Well sorry I stayed away so long ... but just know I am trying to make it back on here more regularly now . But with the holidays now it might be a little hectic but I will do my best !

Got to get back to working hard to get this weight off so that feel better and not be so hard on my hiatal hernia : ( which has been giving me a good bit of trouble the past two weeks .

Once again everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving !
and as always ..... God Bless

Hummingbirds flew south last month. :( Won't see them again until May. Geese and other birds flying south too.

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.

The early bird gets the worm, but the 2nd mouse gets the cheese!

Good Morning ,

My name is Barbie l have lived in the country my whole life and still do : )
I am new to bird watching and been taking pictures of some I am lucky enough to come in contact with .
I am glad that I ran acrossed this team !
I recently came in contact with a bird I can not identify , hope you all can help me . Some have told me it is a red headed wood pecker . But that I know for a fact is not what this bird is .

I am going to post a picture of it now for you all to help me identify it . Oh I love in WV IF that helps.

Well getting ready to head out to Sunday School and Church Service ..... So I check back with you later

Heal me , O Lord and I shall be healed;
save me , and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise .

Don't cross the pollinators: Starting July 1, they're protected by law! Gov. Mark Dayton & legislators enacted 2 laws this spring unique among the 50 states. The first prohibits labeling plants as beneficial to pollinators such as bees, ants & bats, if those plants have been treated with & have a detectable level of pesticide that is lethal to pollinators. MN is the first state with those types of laws! www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/201

Went to Ithaca for the weekend and saw a new to me bird. It was only a tree sparrow but so gorgeous up close. Irradescent green on the head and shoulders. It was in a nesting box but flew out when we walked by and would not go back until we were on the other side of a pond. pretty.
Also saw the local bald eagle on the way back from shopping. Gorgeous in flight. A smaller one, must have been the male. kim

I was putting out a feeder station when I looked up to find a chickadee within arms reach watching me. I stood really still and let some of the other birds come to me. This was very exciting. My roses came in today. Now I have to get my back straightened out so I can set them out.

Miajoeb I have a brother in California but they are in Southern and its been hot there I guess. his girls are married and live there too one has 2 little girls.I bet you will be glad to get some rain! I spent a winter in Mareno Valley in SCal and I loved it first time I was ever able to lose any weight in the winter time. I hear its pretty bad for dry this winter thats a bummer!! We might not see robins here till about May but usually if its an early Spring we get them sooner.I cant wait we have been SO TERRIBLE COLD this winter ,worst cold one I can remember and I am not that young!! emoticon

Thank God it is raining today. We are hoping the rain will fill in the reservoirs and enhance the snow pack so we can have water in the Sacramento valley this summer.
We are already talking water rationing if we don't get more rain.
Looking forward to the Robins coming in next month, normally get 50 to 100 while they travel through but we normally have a couple couples who stick around.

New survey shows winter Mexican habitat at smallest on record. Genetically-modified crops in the corn belt is the primary culprit behind the precipitous monarch declines over the past 3 years. At least 167 million acres of monarch habitat has been lost since 1996. www.startribune.com/lifestyle/healt

Can I put pebbles on top of the earth in a pot that has an Alissa violet?
Isn't it like most lilies and doesn't it die back every year?

The Cornell bird feeder web cam is back up for the season. I like to have this on my computer sometimes when I'm on my other (work) computer. I've seen some flocks of Evening Grosbeaks come in now and then and piggy Ravens and Blue Jays loading up on the peanuts.

I've only seen the Red headed woodpecker once here in North Dakota. I know they say we're supposed to have them. What we see the most are the Downy & the Hairy Woodpeckers. They are very similar in color but the Downy is smaller. We also have the Northern Flicker which is part of the woodpecker family.

I'm still not seeing the hummingbirds but my sugar water feeder has been going down so hopefully that means they have found it and it's not being blown out of the feeder by our North Dakota wind.

We've slowed down putting out millet seed because the Gackles (black birds to some) go through it so fast. At least the thistle seed feeders are only easy for the small birds to feed on. We have the ones with the wire mesh screens.
