I have developed an interest in birds recently; in fact, I've grown quite fond of those feathered critters. I live in a really good area for sightings because I live near a creek, a park, and a generally wooded area. Just yesterday I started documenting my sightings, but I remember some earlier sightings … Continue reading Bird Sightings from 2015
