Ginnie BakerI love living the country life. It’s hectic at times but usually slow-paced compared to the corporate world I lived in for quite a few years.

I have always been a “nature lover” and have been involved as a volunteer for the Audubon Christmas Bird Count for a lot of years. I count the species at our bird feeders on that special day in December when some of us stay at home to count while others take to the fields and the woods across the country.

During the Christmas bird count this year, I had a Cooper’s Hawk decide to come diving in for Christmas dinner!

Wildlife, including birds, can be so interesting.
