  1. OH hope the flight is something you will be sharing...these photos do speak for themselves...the new generation of birds for us to enjoy and protect is already out there living the life! Safe Travels! Love your weasel shot!

    1. Thanks, Sondra! Yes the next generation is here and they want food now!

  2. Cute babies!

    Also cute weasel! Are they native?

  3. That WIFL shot is ace. Also dig the MODO blue-green eyelid immensely.

    Bring on the Vermont posts!

    1. Not all birds rock natural eye shadow. Vermont has been brought.

    2. So sweet a shot of the Willow!!
