The Bird is the Word

12 Aug

During barley harvest this year, I had a couple of unique photo opportunities of birds of the very large variety. I don’t know what it is about birds, but the women in my family have always loved them. I remember my Grandma Marcie’s big, color, hardback bird book on a shelf in her living room. My mom always had a bird feeder and was naming different species as we’d see them land on a fence wire. And for my birthday this year, I asked for a book on birds found in Wyoming.

So, while I don’t know much about these winged things, I love watching them and capturing them. Maybe my friend Brittany over at Chasing Birds can offer some insights.

Turkey vulture. He’s not ugly…he’s unique…okay, he’s ugly. But, you try eating road kill for a living.

I do say, old chap, the barley is absolutely divine this time of year.

If you’re an aspiring bird nerd, here are a couple links for more info:



God Bless You & American Agriculture,


Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Matthew 6:25 (NLT)
