I'm a photographer and graphic designer who fell in love with backyard birding after receiving a bird feeder as a Valentine's Day gift (how apropos!). Around the Bird Feeder is a place to celebrate these beautiful, gentle neighbors with whom we share our backyards. Please check back as I'll be updating the site with new photos and journal entries on a regular basis as the seasons progress. Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
