Bird in a Bush, by Beverly Hicks Burch

It appears it’s been a fruitful spring around here this year. We had a nest of barn swallows in the corner of the front porch. It amazed me how fast they were grown and out of the nest and flying. Just two weeks ago they were tiny little “angry birds” complaining every time my flash… Continue reading Bird in a Bush, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A couple of weeks ago I walked out onto my nice big front porch, looked around and thought, “Good grief, who or what has turned my porch into a poop deck?!” There was bird poopy on handrails and in a certain corner of the floor. I happened to gaze upward and immediately got an answer… Continue reading Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A True Snow Bird, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Saw this fellow just after we crossed into Florida at the Welcome center on I-95. Many more of his kin could be seen flying in true “V” formation…hard to believe he’d be Christmas dinner for someone :/   Save

Picture of the Day – Seagull near St. Simons Island Lighthouse

This little fellow looks like he was about to be overwhelmed by the waves and swept out to sea, but he was actually quite safe. It was a gray, drizzly day on the beach near the St. Simons Island Lighthouse, but it didn’t stop this hardy fellow and his kin from their daily rounds… ©… Continue reading Picture of the Day – Seagull near St. Simons Island Lighthouse

Travelogue, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Travelogue By Beverly Hicks Burch Friday I spent seven and a half hour driving in a Jeep by myself to see my Tall & Handsome. After almost seven years of marriage we’re still kind of like newlyweds and anytime apart is sorely felt. I spent a lot of time reflecting on our history yesterday…replaying some… Continue reading Travelogue, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Wild Birds Fast Food and Fly Through, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Wild Birds Fast Food and Fly Through By Beverly Hicks Burch Shortly after we met I introduced Tall and Handsome to bird watching and bird feeding. Since he’s indisputably dotty about animals, it didn’t take him long to get “hooked on bird feeding”. And when he gets hooked on something, he does like to jump… Continue reading Wild Birds Fast Food and Fly Through, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Lonesome Dove, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Lonesome Dove By Beverly Hicks Burch Spring is around the corner and daylight savings time has “sprung forward”. (I hate loosing that hour!) That’s a clear sign things will soon be turning warmer and we’ll see changes all around us. Days are becoming longer and I’ve detected the return of certain little friends. As kids… Continue reading Lonesome Dove, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Chicken Hung Phooey, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Chicken Hung Phooey By Beverly Hicks Burch It’s been a rough couple of years. It all started a couple of years ago when Tall & Handsome was transferred. We were transferred “back where I come from” to paraphrase the Kenny Chesney song. Yep, it was even East Tennessee. I was really glad to have the… Continue reading Chicken Hung Phooey, by Beverly Hicks Burch
