Good to hear from you Casey.

I love birds. I can sit out back and enjoy watching the swallows, mockingbirds, martins, bluejays, and even sparrows for hours.

LR, I love your camera too. Give me!!!

I should probably spend more time outside watching birds and just nature in general. But when you are work 20 - 30 hours weeks at Satrbucks plus school and getting ready for college and such I don't have much free times on my hands.

Also, my uncle, who lives in Utah near Salt Lake City, called me a few weeks back asking me if I would like to spend the summer working for him. I jumped on that oppurtunity since I can't get out of Maryland fast enough! So just thought I'd tell everyone that I'll be spending the summer in Utah then Oklahoma for the fall.

Really excited about all the stuff thats about to happen in my life. I just can't wait to get out of high school and live Maryland in the rear view mirror.

I want LR's camera too. Or a way to get birds to stay close so I can take a pic of them.

Casey, you can be the teacher's pet. I have a lot of pets though, not just one.

Just tonight while is was mowing my back yard there was a flock of birds following me as I mowed. Then I turn around and go back down another row and they just stood there picking at the fresh cut grass as I passed them. It was kind of funny.

Just think, if you would have run them over with your lawn mower you would have "SHREDDED TWEET" for breakfast.

Sorry I had to take a jab .

Friendly little buggers aren't they? Any idea what kind they were? This morning I had a couple of Robins hopping around the lawn while I was hanging the wash.

I've been TRYING to get a decent shot of these little guys... their Momma has been feeding them in the yard all week, but I'm afraid if I walk out there she will make them leave. I took these through the screen door:

Reading through this thread I am thinking I'd better NOT bring my Camera to our next get-together.

And I didn't even mention that I too wanted that camera.
You'll be bringing it to the big air show in May right?

Some Crows, Sissor Tailed Fly Catchers and then there were 2 that may have been Sparrows but I'm not sure.
