The Great Backyard Bird Count and Gifts for Bird Lovers

The Great Backyard Bird Count is currently underway.  It is a wonderful activity that even young kids can participate in.  If you have an avid bird watcher in your family and have difficulty finding unique gifts for them, these resin birds may be your answer!

30 Days of Thanks

Every November I see a post go through Facebook on 30 days of thanks. The idea is that every day you post something new that you are thankful for.  I must admit I have never participated in it, but I do enjoy seeing the posts others faithfully put online each day.  For some reason, today it made me wonder why is it that people only focus on things they are grateful for in November?  Could posting one thing we are thankful for each day help people appreciate and see the joy in their lives a little more? Something to ponder....

 

I'm still in the process of taking down Halloween decorations and putting Thanksgiving ones up---I know I am so far behind this month I hardly know where to begin.  I saw a review from one of our customers on our Thanksgiving Pilgrim Bird Family that I thought was so cute. The person said her daughter saw the bird family as a representation of her family- one for the little girl, and one for each of her parents.  I love it when I hear things like that because my children do the exact same thing!

The Summer Peacock

 I don't know if you've seen this bird, but I absolutely LOVE it!  The owls were all the fashion during winter, and the chicks took over spring.  I will be truly surprised if these peacocks aren't all adopted by July.    Haven't seen what I am talking about? Well, let me help you. Here is the Spring/Summer Peacock:

Speaking of peacocks...

We live near the Folsom CA zoo and I take my kids their quite often.  One of the things I find most charming about this zoo is that they have chickens and peacocks that run around the zoo freely (this is a very small zoo). Now, my 5 and 7 year old love them.  They hear their loud calls (and I mean LOUD!) and search them out.  My younger two children will do everything to avoid them at all costs because the peacocks quite often are larger than they are!  Before I go, here are two more peacocks you may want to check out- while not as tall as the first, they are still quite grand and beautiful!
