'TODAY', A-ROD, and an Anteater!

I'm not going to lie; it's definitely been quite a while since my last blog post.

Birds have grown on me. They used to be my least favorite group of animals, now (over time) they have become one of my favorites. Living in a rural area along the Snake River, I’m surrounded by them 24/7. (As I write this blog, I’m staring straight ahead at the river, counting various river coots,
