For Troutbirders complete book review on A Love Affair With Birds by Sue Leaf click on the above book cover to take you to Troutbirder II.
I came late to birding in my life after having given up upland game hunting due to a defunct knee. After an introduction to this new hobby by a good friend, I also thought it was also an excellent opportunity to take my big GSD for long hikes in the countryside. And so it all began.
Here a just a few of the almost two hundred birds I’ve seen In Minnesota and counted along the way…..
Early spring Northern Oriole on my white pine.
Red Breasted Nuthatch & friends
Ovenbird (warbler) rehabilitating in my beer cooler. I'll tell that story another time. :)
A few of our many "yard birds" taken with my little point and shoot camera.
