Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. (Matthew 13:52 KJV)
Happy 2011 to all of you. As we start the New Year, lets keep the old things which were good and look forward to finding and doing new things. Like improving our walk with the Lord, but maintaining the good habits of Bible Study and serving the Lord. Also, improving our knowledge about God’s Creative Hand and not forgetting the things already learned. (At this stage of my life, that is becoming a challenge :o) ) Two of my goals for this year is to continue to improve this blog and most of all to serve my Lord better than before.
There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen: (Job 28:7 KJV)
When I got up this morning I started watching my bird feeder outside the bedroom window to see what the first bird of 2011 would be. Two Mourning Doves and then a Eurasian Collared Dove landed right behind them. Looks like the Doves have it for me. We then drove to Bartow, FL, 7 miles away, and started my birdwatching list for the year.
I think most of the birds either had a party or were sleeping in after all the fireworks and racket kept them awake during the night. We only spotted another Mourning Dove, a Boat-tailed Grackle and 2 Black Vultures on the way to town. On the way back, they had started waking up. We saw lots of Cattle Egrets, a Great Egret, a Mockingbird, two unknown Hawks and 300-400 Turkey and Black Vultures heading in a SE direction.
Would love to hear what your first birds of the new year are. How about leaving a comment and telling us about your first birds of 2011. Waiting to hear, Lee
