Awesome Thirteen

Numbers 1 through 10:

There are 10 pictures in the link below. Please view them as a slideshow. You will witness two peregrine falcons exchanging food mid air as they are flying. One falcon will fly upside down and retrieve the food from the other falcon. It is so incredible to watch! Thanks to Marcia who let me post these pictures.

Incredible Mid Air Food Exchange.

The birds are Mariah and Kaver, stars of the Kodak Birdcam.

Today is Blog Olympics Training Camp #8. The festivities start today (June 1) at noon eastern time, 9:00 AM MST. Just check out the count down clock on my sidebar to see how much time is left till it starts, or maybe it's already started. It only takes a few minutes to play. Just go to Keb's Blog and follow a couple of easy instructions. Five minutes later you'll be done, and you might win Olympic Gold!

What's it all about? Visit Melli's Thursday Thirteen.

My Birdcam Portal

Today is banding day for the Kodak Birdcam baby falcons. They will get little ankle bracelets that can be used to identify them when they leave the nest. They will also get named today, it's a big day for falcaholics.

Number 13:

13. Thank you so much to all who visit here, I really do appreciate your blog patronage.

Honestly, those birds are so cool! That slide show is something else! Don't you wonder how they KNOW to do that? Amazing little creatures, to be sure.

And now it's MY turn to be surprised! Thank YOU for the mention! That must have been a quick update! ;) You are MORE than welcome to use my header anytime you like -- as are ANY Blog Olympic participants! It's a fun game and I thank you for creating it!!!

Did the Olympics, I think this is the first time we get penalised for being too articulate, oh well.
I got a good score for a novelist LOL

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!
