Birds Of A Feather

We here in North Carolina were treated with, in my opinion, a very unwanted snowfall this past weekend. My ‘argument’…Lets move south for the snow..said No One Ever fell on deaf ears as Mother Nature has her own agenda. While keeping my bird feeders full, I snuggled in and enjoyed my back deck view……

Mourning Dove

I Am living in the South? Right? This Snow Is For The Birds!

Mother Nature and her plans…..guess she figured we here in the southern states needed some snow…… me, personally, can do without the white stuff…I Do Not Like Winter…..with that said….enjoy the backyard shenanigans of my fine feathered friends…..

HEY SOB….pulled out the Nikon!!! 😄📸

Blogging 101…Day 13…Try (another) Blog Event

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

For todays assignment I chose since the majority of my blog focuses on my photos of nature.

The picture I chose to share is one I took of 2 Egrets in the marsh early one morning. I feel their reflection fits the topic of “Half and Half.”

Day 11…..30 Day Wild Challenge….It’s For The Birds

The air is crowded with birds — beautiful, tender, intelligent birds — to whom life is a song. ~GEORGE HENRY LEWES~

 Today goes to the birds of the Refuge. You never know what your going to see, from songbirds to water fowl. We of course have the Cardinal, the State Bird of my state! 

 The beautiful Red-Winged Black Bird…..

  The Majestic Bald Eagle….

  Blue Heron

  Egrets and Herons and Seagulls enjoying breakfast…

  Pelicans (my favorite bird!)

  And our adorable Piping Plovers…..


“He spoke of very simple things- that it is right for a gull to fly, that freedom is the very nature of his being, that whatever stands against that freedom must be set aside, be it ritual or superstition or limitation in any form. 

“Set aside,” came a voice from the multitude, “even if it be the Law of the Flock?”
“The only true law is that which leads to freedom,” Jonathan said. “There is no other.” ~ Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull~
