Several folks have complimented the bird photos...as if they thought I took them. uh, no. The good ones all have notations that are "copyright someone" in the corner. I have found almost all of these on the Cornell ornithology website, and I can't recommend it to you enough. Go look at the Nest Cams! Coolness!
As I've mentioned, the photos represent birds I see in my thinking place, where I stop to pray on the way home from Jazzercise in the mornings. Here is a picture of the thinking place (which I really did take myself, with my cell phone!)
