Welcome to our room of galleries! Our emphasis is on documenting bird, insect and animal activity in our Shady Oaks Sanctuary, where increasing biodiversity through habitat reconciliation has been ongoing since 1996. Peruse, enjoy and we hope you might even be inspired!

As of March 19, 2020, we dedicate our blog to our grandchildren, Dean Anders, Leif Ansel and Veronica Wren.

May their futures be filled with the peace of wild things.

Amazing Margee! Your backyard creation is paying off, in spades. Wonderful fall warbler variations. Just love the subjects & your masterful photography.
All the best, Dave & Cyndee Batzler, Carlsbad, CA

We loved your site and blog. We have a wooded backyard in Country Lane Woods in Manchester. We have an incredible number of birds calling, hidden by the trees and wish we could recognize their calls. Having met each other in an ornithology class many many years ago, we felt we should be better at this!!!

Margy,
Thank you for a beautiful blog. I enjoyed every word. I did have a Luna Moth in my garden yesterday. It landed on my kitchen window and stayed there and flew away. Such a joy to behold.
