On This Sunday morning its Sibley Backyard Birding Postcards, sounds of bird songs, and our bird dog Cooper!

While listening to the sounds of the below Bird Songs of Eastern, Central N. America it is endearing to watch our puppy Cooper investigating!

His natural bird dog tendencies has him pointing and looking for these birds.  It has meant having to go back outside to investigate!

Sibley Backyard Birding PostcardsIt is fun to find this set of 100 postcards  (image from that features “original watercolor illustrations from David Sibley, America’s leading ornithologist.   Culled from The Sibley Field Guide to Birds, each bird is lovingly rendered in watercolors by David Sibley and chosen with their individual beauty and prominence in the country (with special focus on backyard birds) in mind. Housed in an elegant keepsake box, these postcards are ideal for mailing to friends and family, framed and used as décor, or attached to presents as unique gift tags.”
