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

Sleeping in the Mud
American Avocets sleeping in the mud
While driving around yesterday, I came across this pair of American Avocets sleeping in the mud on the edge of a flooded farm field. I was struck by the incongruity of such beauty and elegance in the midst of such ugliness. Then I remembered why avocets and other shorebirds love the mud: It's their grocery store! Later I saw another American Avocet wading in the shallow water and doing a little grocery shopping.
