Yes, I have lost it all right.  Since many things are happening already in the world of birds, I don't want to miss any more than I am forced.  Luckily, my work schedule is conducive to a bit more freedom this week, so I am taking full advantage.  I saw a few things today that provided a great deal of encouragement, and as each day passes, I hope to show you more in the world of wildlife and teach you wonderful things.

Please get a bird feeder if you don't have one, perhaps even two.  When the ground is frozen it gets more and more difficult for birds to get nourishment.  They also need water, and there are heaters specifically made for birdbaths.  If you want to make a difference, and help our feathered friends survive, nature will thank you by gracing your yards as much as possible.

Black oil sunflower seeds provide the most calories during the colder months.  Thanks in advance everyone, and I love you for being you.
