Ringing in the New Year

To acknowledge my 500th post and wish you all a Happy New Year, I have convinced my colourful little feathered friend, Townsend's Warbler, to share a tale with you ~

  6. A Townsend's warbler eh? I've never seen this bird before, so what a treat for me. What vivid colours and markings, it's looks like Batman!
    A lovely story, I look forward to more.
    Oh my, CONGRATS on the 500 posts! Long may they continue.xxxxx

    1. Thanks so much Snowbird ~ Yes, it's one of the most recognizable birds with its distinct markings. Batman is right ~ glad you enjoyed the story and no doubt there will be more!

  10. Delightful! A really lovely sequence Glo. My favourite photo was the beseeching and rather accusatory one with the 'nothing' caption...such a sweet little bird :-)

  12. Brilliantly though out and illustrated Glo. Would make an excellent section for a nature book for children and those of us still children at heart.
