    A wonderful post honoring our Missouri state bird! During our drought-stricken year, they are seen in back yard bird baths and sprinklers. Otherwise, they pretty much stay on the farms.

      Thank you Ann- I see them more often at my clients in Lincoln and Concord, especially one family that has a huge farm–we’re so far east on Cape Ann, perhaps that is why not as much.

      Marty mentioned that the Eastern Bluebird is the state bird of New York as well.

      Hope you are staying warm in Missouri!

  2. Kim is that one of your photos? If it is it is gorgeous!

  3. Another great informative post, I llok forward to reading your posts every day.

      Very sweet of you to say that Donna-I think your grandchildren would love the free downloadable information packet in yesterday’s post, actually maybe a little too young. It’s your job as the grandmother to get them inspired about nature–I credit – “blame” -my grandmother!
