"A bird is joy incarnate." Myrtle Reed
I have always been fascinated by birds. Their songs and the way they move mesmerize me. I have a bird feeder just outside my kitchen window. Daily, I see a variety of finches, sparrows and, my favorite frequent flyers, chickadees stopping by for a meal. A few years ago, my spouse gifted me with a good pair of binoculars, a book of birds of North America, and a membership to The Audubon Society On our weekend adventures and vacations, I try to identify new birds and check them off the list in my book. I've found it to be a relaxing, educational hobby which is easily supported by the many eResources available from San José Public Library.
