In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Black & Yellow, Black & White
Today I saw two first-of-year birds. One was a bird I expected to see; the other was a bird I did not expect to see. The yellow and black bird pictured above, Yellow-headed Blackbird, is a common bird in my area, and usually arrives here in early April. The black and white bird pictured below, Laughing Gull, is a vagrant from the Atlantic Coast. Laughing Gulls are very rarely seen out here on the Great Plains. Whether common or uncommon, both birds showed up here this week, and thus I have added them to my South Dakota year list which now stands at 95.
