Great pictures - and I LOVE the tag! I never thought of putting the patterned paper on the bottom of one. Will have to lift that idea!
Wow amazing bird pics! as soon as I go for my camera they fly off on me! Great job, Elizabeth!!!
Wow, Elizabeth, what great photos! I love the colorfulness of your LO and the title. That yellow strip at the top reminds me of little birdie footprints. Great journaling too. Nice job! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/smile.gif'>
Love the LO- great shots of the birds
I love all of your bird photos. Our yard is a bird haven too, and I would not have it any other way. Beautiful layout.

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the Dallas area but we do not have a whole lot of trees. The birds love our house because we do have quite a few and we feed them during the winter. A few of these pictures were taken last Spring as it is too early for the babies.
Journaling next to the Doves - The doves seem to love our yard. We have doves almost year round. In the picture of the dove from the front, look closely to the right and you will see there is a baby dove. In the picture from behind, the mother dove has her wing over the baby to protect it from me while I was taking pictures. Unfortunately, I was not the one that the mother dove needed to be concerned about. She needed to be concerned with the neighbors’ cats who are allowed to roam the neighborhood. This baby was dead the next morning.
Journaling next to the Swallows - Every Spring, at least two sets of baby swallows are born on our front porch. No matter how many times we knocked down the mud nests, they rebuild in a matter of days. When there are babies in the nest, we have to be careful when going outside because the parents have been known to dive-bomb us to protect their young. We have given up trying to keep the swallows away.
Journaling next to the Sparrows - Many sparrows have moved in and out of the birdhouse that is right outside our family room window. They have lived in the house as well as under the eaves of the roof. So many baby birds have been born here, I lost count years ago. In February, a mean old Grackle invaded the birdhouse and stole all of the nesting material. This must have scared the sparrows off because the house has been empty for the first Spring in years. I am still hoping that there is a sparrow out there who will be brave enough to move back in.
