It's like looking at puffy white clouds in a bright blue sky. I see things. And these things change with direction.Sun, 24 Aug 2014 00:00:00 EDTSo much to know about hummingbirdshttp://www.messengernews.net/page/content.detail/id/578180.htmlLast week I told you about hummingbird banding in Springfield, Ill. There's so much more to say. Catching a hummingbird in your bare hand has to be amazing. Not many people have earned the permit which allows that.

I was sick. Have you ever felt so sick you thought you were going to die and were afraid you wouldn't? I'm an eternal optimist, so even if I feel poorly, I figure that feeling will wear off in a day or two.Sun, 20 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EDT
