Beautiful Birds

We have always enjoyed feeding and watching our native birds around our bird feeders so I thought I'd share some with you. Be sure to look at the last one! He's a real treasure!

Our Lovely chickens!!! These gals count too!

Northern Flicker

Snowy Owl
Here is the grand finale!!! My mom was driving home from WalMart and spotted this guy in the grass next to the road. He flew off (as you can see in the next picture) so he wasn't hurt, just hunting. She came back and got us and my sister got some great pictures. This is a Snowy Owl and just looking at him is quite magnificent!!! God's design is so beautiful!
He was pretty big too! With a wingspan of 4-5 feet!
Just a little something for your day! I'll be posting about the hankie soon! It's going splendid!

Luke 1:30-33
"Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
