That is probably one of the most profound things I've learned through TMG, the very things the boys and I take for granted...cardinals, ospreys..and feel are very common, are simply amazing to others. I love this! Makes us appreciate our simple sapsuckers all the more.

An Ivorybill woodpecker!!! My boys would flip! So stinking cool! And Nancy, I have been pleasantly surprised that I can now HEAR cardinals, red winged black birds, ospreys and hawks BEFORE I see them. I never would have paid such close attention if it hadn't been for my little bird enthusiasts. Love that.

Oh how fun Christina! I've seen the ruby-crowned kinglet in our bird book, but never met one in person. What a treat! Luckily every place I've lived we've always had cardinals visit us in the winter...even in cold blustery Wisconsin. Thanks for sharing.

We've been watching the geese fly South overhead. We hear them before we see them, but they are such a joy to watch. I love your thoughts about bottling up our nature sightings and giving them as gifts...we'll have to find a way to do that ;-)
