One of our pleasures we enjoy no matter where we go is looking for new birds, learning their calls and songs, and studying their habits. No matter where we go there are birds. It has been my hobby as long as I can remember and Janet jumped right in too. Our kids were never too interested but our grandkids love to watch birds with us — even to sit and look at their pictures in our many bird books.
For anyone else interested, you can see my list of birds we've seen recently, along with a few other critters. You can see our list here. For my article on Bird Watching and God, click here. For my article on Turkey Vultures and the Bible, click here.
By the way, the picture here is of a Scarlet Tanager. His song sounds very much like a robin with sore, raspy throat. He woke us up every morning Up North last week, but we didn't care. We enjoyed listening to him praising God from the tree tops. You can hear his song here.
