The birds like us. Gold Finch


Birds attack each others nests and eggs. There had been three eggs in this one and only a broken empty one is left. This is right outside our back door.

My wife Betty’s home town on the south shore of Long Island. Below is La Grange now closed but a long time German restaurant. Also it was where we had out wedding reception.


A bird house in my brother in laws back yard. Just look at the length of that thing the bird is trying to get into the bird house. Look at the upper hole.


Additions and Corrections

I should have added that the Name Tappan Zee comes from the name of the Tappan Indian Tribe that lived in the area and the Dutch word for wide expanse of water  “Zee”

Some time ago I had pictures of Terns which I called Turns. Since I was taught spelling by nuns it was probably their fault. The good news is that a member of that same order gleefully brought the misspelling to my attention.
