We lived at Ft. Hood, Tx in the early 1970s and had a "Ranger Station" in our back yard that was a climbing contraption for school age children, with ladders, slides, climbing ropes, with a lot of bells and whistles that made it the favorite toy in the neighborhood. Also participating in the play was a Mockingbird, quite tame. He loved the kids and they returned the affection. They would chatter together and he always came around when the kids had their lunches on the top deck. His wonderful sounds delighted us all.

Thanks Sentient for the RSS feed blog link - I will look into getting some ideas and post them here.

by the way, to get RSS feed of new discussions here, you can go to the "view all" link above, then click on the RSS icon.  I can't explain it in detail,  but it works for me in google reader and on my kindle RSS reader, which is helpful.

Any suggestions for some good RSS feeds or blogs about birding, or about birds?  I need something to keep me semi-sane.  Science, evolution, or just cool pictures, backyard bird feeding and attracting, are all good.  Something with frequent posts or updates?

I saw this one- it looked interesting.  Im sure there must be lots of others.

Joan Denoo put this up in Hang with Friends - so i wanted to put it here for all of you too.

Thanks Steph, I don't think I knew what a Mocking-Bird looked like!
