Great presentation Nancy!


Good one Nancy and I'm not even saddle sore!


Love the theme for this I and the Bird. Well done Nancy.

The poor horse that ended up with jockey Gwen. Haha.
I hope for its sake it's a Belgian Heavy Horse. :D

Nice job Nancy! I love the horse racing motif and what a great turn out!


Now that's what I like - birding at the track! What a creative nod to our summer meet. For today's feature, all the entries seem pretty evenly matched and are lookin' good in the paddock. However, I think I will box an exacta with 5 and 3, and do a side bet on 28 to show (and not just because her name is Rachel). Of course, all this depends on the odds I get! And, while we are talking birds, let's not forget the immortal Grey Lag (1918-1942). Thanks for compiling this very informative selection of blogs!


Fun and imaginative lineup! Look forward to visiting all these posts!


Great creativity! I have just gotten back into blogging and looking at the blogs of others. A vauge rememberance of enjoying your blog in the past led me to come. Now I remember why.

With all the creatively imagined posts we've been seeing for "I and the Bird," yours raises the "stakes" even higher!

Very creative I and the Bird!


Great presentation! It made me miss my days working up in Saratoga...though I won't miss the ads with the "call to the post" that seemed to play every five minutes!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
