Haven't been here for a while. Just reconnecting with all of you and SP in general. I, too, am a birder. Got a "lifer" while on vacation- a black and white warbler. Not much of a "bloomer" . Ironically my plants grew fantastically while I was away and they were totally neglected.

Hello bird lovers! My name is Sherrie. I live in Loon Lake, Washington and, I LOVE BIRDS! I love taking pictures of birds and other wildlife. Birds & Blooms magazine has actually published a couple of my pictures. I'm just an amateur with a point and shoot camerera with a 10x zoom, but it's amazing how many birds come right to me on my mini-deck off of our bedroom. We are right on the water, so we get the water birds, as well as the woodland and forest birds.

If you would like to look at some of my bird pictures, go to www.LSHLoonLake.com

Ginger,

Thanks for the invite!

My 3 kids saw lightening bugs for the first time last week all around our house. It makes me glad to live on the East Coast - never recall seeing them in California!

I'm starting my major weight loss plan Monday, June 30. Is it against the rules on a bird lover's site to say that I'm going to be having a lot of...chicken? LOL

I'll check in with you all about my progress if that's OK! I've Yo-Yo'd for 12 years and I'm DONE. I'm so serious this time, it's ridiculous. After my husband leaves the house on Monday, I'm getting rid of all the chips!

Even when those lovely little lights come out I rarely get to see them. Since I have to get up at 3:30 in the mornings monday through Friday, I'm usually in bed and trying to sleep before the sun goes down. I try to get a glimpse of them on the weekends though! emoticon

Hi Tina
Yes we always called them lightening bugs.
I miss them so much.I think they do not live that long so it was probably okay even when we caught them and let them fly in our room they would be mostly dead in the morning.
I for one would love to see your song.
I admire talented people who write and sing or drar for the pleasure of other people.
What type of music do you make ??Is there a place we can see you play like youtube .
Have a great day .Watch those bugs for me .I do not have then here

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and a nice father's day celebrating with the fathers in your lives.

Just wanted to report back that right on schedule, tonight was the first night that we did see fireflies/lightning bugs!! (does anybody call them by that name?)

My partner and I were driving on a rural road north of Ann Arbor and saw the little flickerings up in the leaves of the trees. The first ones are always so exciting.

Must confess that as a kid, my brothers and I used to take their lights and draw on the cement with the glow-in-the-dark tail. I am a fierce animal lover these days, but we all have moments in our lives where we do ignorant things simply because no one has yet to instruct us to think, you know?!

BTW, my band, Wide-Eyed has a song called "Love Bug," that is a love story about fireflies. If anyone's interested, I will blog the lyrics that I wrote...

Thanks for all the lightning bug love!

Isn't it amazing what we really teach our children? Cruelty to animals and others comes in many forms. Next time tell her that she just taught her child that it's all right to harm smaller creatures in order to make herself "beautiful". (And then we wonder why animals go extinct.)

I hope your grandkids are enjoying catching those glow bugs .It is the stuff a great childhood is made of.Look at us laughing and smileing about them.
My one girlfriend caught one and squeezed the glow part off and showed my daughter to put it on her finger so it would glow there and pretend it was a sparkly ring EEEK I wanted to smack her.That is what she did when she was little.Ihttought that was awful LOL
Hope you had a great day

I miss the fireflies. Less than five years ago there was a nice stretch of road that was completely dark at night. We would drive down and sit in the dark with the car off and wait for them It was awesome! There were literally hundreds that would come out to play! Then the road got paved, the houses built and the field where the fireflies played was turned into a parking lot for the new Condos. Now there are very few where we live. All of you out there enjoy those wonderful little lights for me on these wonderful summer nights.

Thanks Arlene for the Finding Joy link. I know a few friends and family members that will also appreciate it.

Thanks to you all for being so welcoming.

Now it's the end of the day and the last hummingbirds are leaving my feeders. The cardinals and robins are quieting. And my partner and I keep checking the shadows for fireflies...

Have a wonderful evening.

Hello fellow birders and sparkers!

Just woke up for a minute to take out the garbage and put out my newly cleaned and refilled hummingbird feeders, and decided to log on before going back up to bed for a bit. What a wonderful surprise to see that I already had three comments from my teammates at Birds and Blooms! WOW! You guys blow the other teams away! Thanks to Ginger, Kylie and abetterme for the awesome comments!

I started my healthy lifestyle on March 1st and joined SP about three weeks later after a friend at work told me about the site. I currently reside in Michigan and have taken on the hobby of birding for the past 10 years. Isn't walking a wonderful way to get exercise and enjoy all of nature around us?

Just wanted to say I was really impressed at how active you all are on this team and I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. emoticon

Chickens? Soo Cool. I really like those birds! We live in a ranch house on a very small lot but have 9 feeders out for regular birds, two for hummers and 4 water stations! Last week we had a brief visit by a Baltimore Oriole and we live in MIchigan! Thanks for the warm feathery welcome!

Hello. I've been on Spark People for a while and I am looking for new things all the time. I'm hoping to get some ideas for making my own move to the rural life. Or ways to make city living more...likeable.

Hi Tink,

Welcome. Not sure about the finches. They come and go at my feeder as well. I hear them flying over head but they don't stop anymore. Maybe they have a natural food source now that spring as sprung, maybe they are seeking out nesting territory and mates. I do know that they are late nesters because the natural thistle they feed their young matures later in the summer. Hope you had a great mother's day weekend!

Hi I'm new here. My name Nena. I have been a member since 5/1. I just found this site. I have enjoyed this spring watching the finches in my front yard. But for the last week or so they haven't come around much. Can you tell me why? I have pictures posted of the finches feeding. I am looking forward to meet other bird lovers also. Thanks for having this site.
