Birds, Illustrated by Color Photography, Vol. 1, No. 6 June, 1897

Leave a comment

This was written in 1897 & for an ornithologist would be an interesting read. That was a different time & the language used reveals that. Some of the birds are rare now.

“There is a singular resemblance between the face of an owl & that of a cat, which is the more notable, as both these creatures have much the same habits, live on the same prey, & are evidently representatives of the same idea in their different classes The owl, in fact, is a winged cat, just as the cat is a furred owl.”

This was an interesting comparison to me &  I can recognize there are similarities.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
