Pam 09/18/11 05:17 pm Lovely old illustrations - a very nice book to own. Thanks Marty.
Shelley 09/18/11 05:19 pm Fabulous! I LOVE old books and hers is a treasure!

A good friend of mine was helping her mom clear out her apartment as she downsized to move to a small seniors home. They gave me 2 large coffee-table sized books of Paintings of JF Lansdowne with wonderful text by John A Livingstone. They aren't really that old (copyright 1966 and 1968) but they have the *old*-ish look and feel to them. Just gorgeous!
Trishrg 09/18/11 08:20 pm Very cool. My sister lives about an hour north of Madison, and that's the only place I've ever seen a chickadee and tufted titmouse. And they're both on the same page in the book. !!!
Looking forward to returning there soon.
Melanie 09/18/11 08:57 pm While I have Chickadees all year (the Carolina subspecies) I have been overrun with them this week.
Shelley 09/18/11 09:39 pm Just yesterday as I was watering my plants, a black-capped chickadee flew down to my walk and stayed there, allowing me not only to run inside and get my camera, but to actually stroke its chest!! A first for me. It hopped away and eventually flew off but they are at my feeder and birdbath daily. Maybe it recognized me as the hand that feeds it (though it won't yet land on my hand to eat out of it; but I'm trying!) It was a thrill!
Celeste 09/19/11 08:38 am Wow Shelley! How thrilling is right!
As always love it Marty...thanks!
Trishrg 09/19/11 08:46 am We need some pictures Shelley!!!!
Melanie 09/19/11 09:16 am Keep the hulled sunflower seeds and patience handy - you'll get there! If you are not already doing it, if you can sit with your hand out for periods of time they will start to see you as "the feeder".
