  1. I love the picture of the nest on top of the utility pole!

  2. Great list. Lots of diversity. I don’t usually think of gulls being in Wyoming or Utah. Interesting!
    Love the new header.

  3. The gulls were by Salt Lake City so I am assuming that is why they were there.

  4. Hi Barb,
    Thank you for you comment on Under an English sky. I am a huge fan of your Handbook blog and am just delving into your wonderful art blog :o)
    I said the exact same thing to my daughters as your daughter said to you about seeing things that we only read about and how some people will never see them at all! Indeed it is a privlidge. I hope that you do get to come to England and visit The British Museum – drop me a line and I’ll go with you ;o)
