Today is my birthday!

(Special note: if you read my log cabin blog, I am gratuitously using the same photo)

Today is my birthday! I started thinking about when I started loving and becoming interested in birds. I think it was when I was 3 years old. I submit as proof this photo of me on my 3rd birthday with my Papa. Please note the Donald Duck slippers I chose to wear with my party dress. And that's where it all began.......somebody get me a camera!

Great photograph and memories.

I saw a comment you posted on Craig's blog about ebird. I went there and joined. I also posted my wood stork and the now identified red shouldered hawk.

I do have a post of the wood stork, a while back though.
