Back to the archives for today’s post. I was looking/listening to bird calls on YouTube late last night and came across one that highlighted 10 of the most beautiful cockatoos in the world and was surprised to discover that 8 of them came from Australia.

I had had frequent visits from both male and female hummingbirds early in the spring. The daily visits continued for a […]
In the July edition of It’s A Birb Thing, Cheeks finds herself a bit tangled up.
