Barbara, it was a neat experience. Thanks for you comment.
Ellen, I'll have to look for that next time I'm at the musuem.


The State Museum (NY) has at least one Ivory-Billed Woodpecker in its collection. I remember seeing it on display, around the time of the "hubbub" surrounding the bird's rediscovery.

The demise of these majestic birds still makes me sad.


Amazing experience Nancy - you are so lucky - and it makes me feel the same way - humans have not been kind to the other inhabitants of this world.

  • 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.
