RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD

I shared the picture below back in July, and I thought he deserved his own post today.


We found him on our last visit to Huntley Meadows Park mid May.  You can learn more about him here.  If you scroll down that page, just beneath where it shows you the silhouette of the bird (on the left-hand side of the page you will read 'key to identification’), you can click on a button to hear its call.  


We always find them at the park, as we walk along the wooden boardwalk that goes over the marshy water.  We have seen them in other similar habitats over the years.  I love their colorful epaulettes on their shoulders.

OLD FAMILY PHOTO

Gregg recently acquired this wonderful old photograph of family members, six sisters taken a very long time ago.  These old photos are the real treasures.

TWO PHOTOS FROM MY SISTER-IN-LAW

These are two more photos from Gregg's sister, who spent time recently with this little sweetie.  She was helping her with the latest puzzle.
