Winging in the Rain

Maynard had seen his favorite movie musical so many times that he broke out into a song-and-dance number whenever the sprinkler came on.

This One Is For The Birds

“I MUST tell you how much your laugh-out-loud, got-me-squeeing-all-the-time, witty, quippy Qte brightens my day every time I go online. It’s been the home page on my browser for years. I submit for your con-see-der-a-shon…a song sparrow I saw on campus one day last fall, looking like it was waiting for the bus. When I saw it, I thought “Rule of Cuteness #6.” I’m studying songbirds for my Ph.D. and have started posting their close-up adorableness on my Twitter page.” -Megan S.

“I got some great shots of the owls that have been living on our school playground in Golden, CO where I am a teacher’s assistant. I can’t believe they have decided to take up residence in our trees considering the children are quite loud when they are outside for recess! They (the owls- and some of the kids) are super adorable. The babies are Hooter, Scooter, and Pooter! The mom is just… mom.” -Amanda M. B.

How Cold Is It? Part II

It’s so cold, the artists formerly known as Snowy Owls have confirmed they now want to be known as I Wanna Go To Miami Owls.

An invasion of Snowy Owls, the magically beautiful bird of the Arctic (and Harry Potter), has been reported this winter across the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. One has made it all the way to Little Talbot Island, near Jax, Florida! That is a real Snow Bird invasion.
