More peanuts please!










I am headed to the Michigan Audubon Society's 105th conference this weekend in Lansing where I'll be speaking about Birding & Blogging. Hopefully they think I'm funny! Wait - hopefully they think I'm INFORMATIVE! (But some of you know, I like to add humor to my birds....) Wish me luck!

Don't forget to pack the peanuts :D

Love the sense of humor and great photos!

Maybe the Goldfinch would like to know that peanuts are going to be much cheaper than thistle soon. Another bad crop year. In my area, a 50# bag is going for nearly $100 and a 20# bag is $48.

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes! My biggest fear is to bore someone!! Leedra - yes you are right and I will listen to you!!
Betsy - I'm actually doing a demonstation on my computer via an LCD Projector to go thru the steps of them setting up a blog. Then we're discussing how blogging can help the birds, blogger etiquette, tips and advice, etc. I will email you the handout.

Shellmo said...

P.S. I will be showing them many of your blogs at the presentation and am giving them a link list so they can visit all my great birdy friends!

Shelley : Congratulations on the speaker slot in the conference. You will go really well (because you are a hands-on person when it comes to birding & blogging). Here's wishing you the very best and remember to let your heart flow in the speech.
