Like many here on the East Coast, I have spring fever. Not just a little, but a lot. In these parts of the Appalachians December and January were particularly brutal and February started out dicey, but the last 10 days or so have been mild and heavenly.
I may be jumping the gun a bit but with spring being less than a month away I fully intended on celebrating by posting about birds, feeding birds, and bird feeders. For some visual inspiration, I visited one of my most favorite sites ever, John&Fish. I’m not alone in my attraction to their site as their flickr album has received over a million clicks in just over two years! If you’re not familiar with John and Fish, they are a remarkable brother/sister ornithology photography duo living in Taiwan. Monday through Friday they work in software information in John’s software technology company, but most every weekend they spend photographing the fascinating birds of Taiwan. Their work ranges from ethereal beauty to whimsical and heart-warming. The more I browsed through their photos, the more I realized that their pics are what I wanted to post. These photos make me happy and help me remember that spring is just around the corner.
