  1. I see you are located in Kansas, surrounded by the birds of my youth! Especially miss the brown thrasher–so much moxie in a small feathered package. Even more for you in May, I hope.

    1. Born and raised. I saw a house finch today, and need to add that to the list. I’m keeping my eyes open for new arrivals: killdeer, warblers, cowbirds…
      I also have a few road trips I’d like to make to catch some of the more exotic visitors to the state. Thanks for stopping by!
