    Thank you for stopping in. I love the premise behind your blog, “All Things Good”. There is so much negative in the world, we could all use a little more positive news!

    Loved this. I do love birds! I raise Zebra Finches. They are so cheerful and happy! I love to step out the door now and hear bird song. Unfortunately, we don’t get it often. We have a lot of crows and they scare off the smaller, ‘singier’ birds. 🙁
    Thank you for sharing!

    Diane, we have a lot of common grackle in our yard, and my understanding is they are like the “vermin” of birds.

    Liz, the woman that does these nature excursions in our area is wonderful. Our homeschool groups brings children of all ages and she works with all of them from the teeny tots to the teenagers!
