For Science this year we are working on an Encyclopedia of Life On Our Hill. We live on a beautiful acreage in the country. The pastures are rented out to a cow farmer and we keep chickens and ducks. Our lovely neighbours just got a goat too! Mainly though, the animal encyclopedia will cover the wild birds, bugs and other critters we run into. Special thanks to our neighbours on the hill, Gayle and Travis, for contributing to the Encyclopedia, including the great hummingbird shots. Everytime I see the hummingbirds they get away before I get back with the camera! We will add to this as we photograph more things. My favourite bird watching season is almost upon us!
