Even if you don't blog, tweet or chirp, you can be a part of the "Birders Who Blog, Tweet and Chirp" birding event in the Twin Cities. Check out all the details here at Lynne's blog. And I want to personally invite my blog readers from the area (Stephen, Kathy, Jess, Val, Danielle, Barefoot Gardener, Deb, Mike, Toniya, Richard, Marsha, Brother Dave, and Cindy from Waterville). Long-range weather predictions are forecasting a perfect day for being outside and I would sure enjoy the chance to meet any (or all!) of you in person. Hope to see you next Saturday!
Here are just a few pictures that I've taken in the last few days that you might bring a smile to your face.
Here's silly Penny taking a nap -- does that look comfortable to you??
There, that's better and definitely looks more comfortable.
I believe Mr. Bunny Rabbit thought he wouldn't be noticed there between the peas and carrots! Unfortunately for him, my vantage point from the second story deck busted him in a second.
This is one of the baby chickadees that hatched in my yard earlier this summer. They're so demanding!
And here's backyard bird #46 for 2009. I know all you city dwellers with an over-abundance of pigeons will think I'm nuts, but I was pretty excited to spot this guy on the roof the other night. I guess there are enough barns and silos in the area that pigeons are actually rare in my backyard.
Oh, and one more thing before I forget......I finally got some inventory back on the shelves of my Etsy shop, so be sure and click on the sidebar link right below my profile to see what's new! (thanks!)
Have a good week everyone!
