Some more birds....

I'm a pioneer at one form of birdwatching...I'm probaly the firste SPB, or Stroller-Pushing Birder, in the world!

I don't know anyone else who can photograph birds while pushing a stroller with an active, demanding infant in it! Ha, this is my forte....

Today, while pushing KTB to Forest Park, I got this female

DOWNY WOODPECKER

In Creve Coeur Lake last weekend, I photographed this

SONG SPARROW

feeding off the dandelion flowers:

this

BROWN-HEADED COWBIRD

was sitting on the lake shore...

I'd like to meet other SPB (Stroller-Pushing Birders) so we can form a club!
