Re: birds and other critters

Naw, Libby...have enough starlings right now, but thanks:-)  I have
never seen an indigo bunting...how neat.  You also must be near some
water to get herons.

Your point about types of birds is very good.  Some on my list you
hear but seldom see and I am sure that other places in this country
have birds that simply don't come around feeders or gardens, but stay
hidden in woody areas or live on high cliffs or something.  This is
such a vast country with so many different types of climate and
native ecosystems that the bird populations (as well as other
critters) have got to be significantly different.
