Spring Blizzard Heading for Kansas

Kansas is suppose to get a Spring blizzard tomorrow. They're predicting 6 or more inches. I guess I'll plan on making some homemade soup.

Cardinals Waiting For Spring

I took this picture of a female Cardinal this Winter. There are several pairs of Cardinals feeding at the feeder much to my delight. Today I saw a male Cardinal take a seed from the feeder and feed it to it's partner. I didn't have time to get the camera out. It was so cute!

Happy Spring! I took these pictures last Spring! A House Finch family made a nest in my Boston Fern. We observed this Finch family from nest building until this little one launched. I checked them each morning and took pictures. This little guy took off on his first flight shortly after I took his picture.

Birds Feeding on the Deck

I decided to purchase a birdfeeder that would attach to the deck. My purpose was to create an interesting, stress-free show for myself as I sipped coffe in the morning. This small decision evolved quite quickly into a hobby as I grabbed my point-and-shoot camera and started logging pictorially the different species attracted to the feeder. Next, I wanted to know what their names were, so to the internet I went. Not knowing what to Google caused me to remember that there was a list of bird names printed on the side of the birdfeed bag...ah-ha! I began Googling each name and started to discover exactly what I was looking at! Pure enjoyment!
The first picture is an American Cardinal and the other is a House Finch. Here are some links to learn more about the Cardinal and House Finch...
