Congratulations Kat! I enjoyed all the fun facts about you--what an interesting life you've led. I always enjoy your family posts. Hard to pick a favorite bird, but I have to choose the owl.

Carol said...

Talk about a tough choice...guess I'll go with the Woodpecker... We have them at our hummingbird feeders all the time. Our woods are full of several kinds of woodpeckers and I enjoy watching them hop around the way their heads bounce up and down when they are feeding.

Hey Kat!
Congrats on being over 100 followers. I loved reading about you...I also love the sea, flipflopss, birds...I'm a night owl, Gone with the wind is an all time favorite of mine too!
I can't choose a favorite bird because they are so different and beautiful. But if I win I'd choose the Woodpecker. Love those stunning red heads. Thanks for the opportunity to win a lovely work of yours!

Samantha said...

Fun facts about you! You know how much I adore my current bird from you..and the crow is on my list next...
I would love a cardinal!

ANNE said...

Love learning more about you, Kat! I was an army brat, so i can relate to your time as a world traveler... it does make you crave change! I love all your birds, but I think the robin is my favorite since I had the pleasure of raising two baby robins last summer!

I love the bluebird...although the cardinal is beautiful, too! And guess what...I have FOUR sons! Mine are all grown now but it sure has been fun having ALL boys! And your Dad is a Monk...very interesting! Hugs! ♥

I just fell in love with your little birds! so pretty - I'd love it if we win cause I can make it a project with my 3 sons- (they're a little younger than yours- but we love art & nature!) I may just have to link to some of your projects on our nature homeschool blog - love it!

I think I'd pick the blue bird- but they are all beautiful!

I would love to have a cardinal, because it's also the state bird of Indiana! And I was so fun to read all about you. Thanks for sharing all of that. I have to say I'm especially fascinated by the fact that your dad is a Benedictine monk. We recently visited the Abbey of Gethsemani, which is a Trappist monastery in Kentucky.
