I SAW THE MOST AMAZING THING TODAY!!!!

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it! I had just dropped hubby off to pick up his truck from the shop and what to my wandering eyes did appear but a bird that I had never seen before.

After much searching on the internet, I finally found it!  I can't believe it.  I have a new bird to add to my life list.  I'm such a bird nerd.

Isn't the song just beautiful?

Ahem . . . I celebrated my birthday a few days early and guess what I asked for?  More bird seed!  Guess what I got?  A watch.


And bird seed!

Definitely a meadowlark---gorgeous colors. Growing up, as a boy, the Texas fields were loaded with them.

Happy Birthday, Cathy -- and I asked for the same thing for Christmas. My family thought I was nuts! :)

Eastern Meadowlarks have one beautiful song. Last summer I finally got a photo of one with my granddaughter at the Etowah Indian Mounts near my home. Their beauty equal their singing ability.

Happy belated Birthday and Happy Birding!!!

Hugs!!!

We have one in the field by our home. I rarely see it but a birder friend with better eyesight pointed it out to me.
You are right - beautiful.
