God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. ~Rudyard Kipling


A very Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms!


Just like all of you moms out there, this Mama Flicker devoted her life to the upbringing of her babies. I'm sure she was beyond exhausted at times, but she didn't stop to rest until all six of her chicks had grown into strong, healthy birds and left the nest. Being a mom can be a tiring, sometimes thankless job, but the world is a softer, gentler place to land because of you...and we love you!

Hi Anne! You're so kind to leave comments on my blog. As you know, I love interacting with fellow nature lovers - and I'm hoping the comments section will begin to develop more. AND...I'm glad I can provide you with a few pictures you haven't seen before! As always...thank you!
