I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Kingfisher


When I first moved into our house in the "hood" of North Minneapolis I saw a kingfisher from time to time down by Shingle Creek. But that was 21 years ago and I have not seen one of these since then, until this week. I was very blessed.
And a male pheasant comes and checks out our yard every morning. Not bad for the center of such a large metro area.

The only birds I see in the heart of the hood are pigeons.

I remember watching birds with others growing up: cardinals, blue jays, and half-capped chickadees. That's the extent of my knowledge now, so it's neat to see someone else's.

I see what looks like orioles (sp?) in MN, but I think I was told that they are not exactly true orioles.

Furthermore, I do know the Great Blue Heron. And people always ask: "Are you sure that's it's name: Great Blue -- ?".
