  1. I agree with Mia – those are great moody shots – and 4-H – what a gas! young people around here are involved as well – two youngsters at a farm across the way in particular – one with a beautiful paint mare, she’s going to be ridden and shown by hand by a girl about 11 and her brother who is I think 8 or 9 has a calf he’s raising… a pretty Charolais heifer. All 4-H things are terrific in my opinion anyway… such a great opportunity. If you spend as much effort there as you do with your birding – holy smoke – you’re going to do so well Prairie Birder! Well done!

      I’m glad you like my phalarope photos, Barbara.
