The little birds have places for themselves, where they may put their young, even your altars, O Lord of armies, my King and my God. (Psalms 84:3 BBE) This week we come to two families of avian wonders that are next to one another in taxonomic order. The families are the Paridae – Tits, Chickadees with 61 … Continue reading

Ian’s Bird of the Week – Crow Honeyeater

Ian’s Bird of the Week – Crow Honeyeater ~ by Ian Montgomery Newsletter – 7/31/15 I mentioned last week that the Horned Parakeet was second on my wanted list for New Caledonia but probably third on Joy’s.

O LORD, correct me, but with justice; Not in Your anger, lest You bring me to nothing. (Jeremiah 10:24 NKJV) ** Update to Ian’s Bird of the Week ** Just thought you might like to see a Hooded Parakeet with the two “horns”.

Ian’s Bird of the Week – Horned Parakeet

Ian’s Bird of the Week – Horned Parakeet ~ by Ian Montgomery Newsletter – 7/27/15 The Kagu was naturally top of our target list in New Caledonia being the most bizarre in appearance, behaviour, taxonomy and general curiosity value.

Sunday Inspiration – Deep Love of Jesus

He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. (Psalms 115:13 KJV) Today we have nine families being presented. Why? Because they all have very few species in each group.

All kinds of different material. There are weeds, pieces of paper, strings, lint, feathers, and even some “weed-eater” line (blue). … Continue reading

Maybe tomorrow I’ll get a blog out. Yesterday, Dan and I drove down to Fort Lauderdale (200 miles) to see my 94 year old sister, Charlotte. She had been in Intensive Care, ICU, with pneumonia. They took her to a regular room, and started her on morphine. She was dying. We were able to be … Continue reading

Crow Versus Eagle, Free Ride Instead

Here is an article worth looking at: Crow Tries to Fight Eagle, Gets Free Ride Instead ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. (Exodus 19:4 NKJV) Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves … Continue reading
