Got my first fan email yesterday, and it was wonderful. Nothing makes a writer feel better than to hear a reader say they really enjoyed their book. Not only that, she went out and bought another. Thanks, Judie.
I’ve read lots and lots of books and never once sent a fan letter. I’ll have to rectify that, because I really enjoyed meeting Judie and talking with her. She definitely made my weekend.
This first pic is for A.M.B., who wanted to see a male goldfinch.
Who doesn’t recognize an eagle when they see one? Look at that gorgeous eye! No wonder they’re our national bird. Incredible, beautiful, strong.
The piliated woodpecker is huge, I’m not kidding. Over a foot long, head to tail. And for some reason, I think of dinosaurs when I see one. These birds are simply gorgeous! When it flew in and settled on the bird feeder, I was shocked. First time I’ve ever seen one, and haven’t again since. They’re not common at all anymore.
