My favorite was the last one too Sandra. I couldn't get the sound to work - I went to the site and it didn't work. Love, sandie

I like how they 'match' the colour of their legs with their beaks ;)

I love that header photo with the sun peeping under those logs. Awesome.

NOW these are the cutest birds and I LOVE the way they sound, that is so precious. Their beaks remind me of candy corn in a way.

Outstanding!

I thought I got the wrong bird sounds but not..at least I can imagine better. They are very beautiful and so are the beach scenes with the enchanting tangled wood!
