Felix on Monday Evening


Felix reports that the warblers are beginning their spring migration.

And that he has once again gotten himself a spot on a national birding team. And was just tapped to report in a national publication. He knows and loves his stuff!

You must be SOO proud of your Son! That is such an accomplishment indeed. He is growing up to be a fine young man, and quite handsome too!

This is why video games should be outlawed. That is fantastic. (although he may be a very good guitar hero too.)

I am sure you have mentioned it before but how did Felix get into birding (?? right term??) Thanks.

How exciting! What a rare blessing to know something so thoroughly and love something so well at such a young age. I have three young ones (8, 6, 4), and I wish you could tell me what the secret is...is it time enough to learn and explore on their own? Is homeschooling the answer (we already do that!)? I know there is no magic bullet, but I do long to order our lives so that my kids have the opportunity to discover their passions and to delve deep into the things that interest them. We live in Southern California and sometimes I feel like I am a small fish trying to swim up a raging stream as I seek to live a slower pace and give my kids space to be and explore and grow. One thing I observe from being an avid reader of your blog for about a year or so now, is that you seem to make good use of your time (to say the least!). You accomplish so much in your days, from being creative in the kitchen to the garden to the sewing room, and you also homeschool and attend church...and you're a lawyer?! I just humbly wonder...how does she do it? Is it personality or discipline or a mixture of both?

You are a blessing and an example to so many of us who read your words and look at your images, and I want to say that I am grateful for the time you take to share with us each day. May God bless you and your precious family -

Congrats to him! :) I can't wait until our birds start showing up...

What a great photo.

I hope (and pray) my child finds his calling as yours have. I fear my sister and I were too often square pegs forced into round holes, and it took both of us a while to figure out where God wanted us to use our talents and gifts.

Just happened upon your blog and wanted to tell you what a beautiful treat it was to find. Love all your different categories, writing style, photos . . . sigh! Blissful!

Amy,
I am deeply inspired by Anna. Our 5 children are all under the age of 7. Anna has written in this blog about how they let their children experience life in the early years and about the sweet, beautiful rhythms to their days. I read this in posts going back years.

Congratulations to Felix!

Katy said...

Congratulations, Felix! We are having Featherfest here in Galveston this weekend. Wish you could be here!

Sue said...

That is awesome! I must show this to my oldest son, who is really into all things birds these days. He is asking for some really good binoculars for his birthday in May. Felix is a handsome young man, but I am willing to bet that the best part is on the inside.

Leslie said...

what a great accomplishment...we love birds

Kimberlee said...

Congratulations, Felix! What a handsome birder. Could you please tell what kind of binoculars he has? Thanks!

Hopewell said...

How cool that he has such a unique hobby!

I would love to know how to get a spot on a national birding team. If possible, could you please explain? Also, our own homeschool ornithologist, Katie, reports that the migrating cedar wax wings are in our neighborhood, the first hummingbird arrived yesterday, a pair of bluebirds have laid five eggs in the bluebird box, (though Katie fears the cold snap over the last two nights may have done them in) and Kevin (the non-native bird eliminator) was successful at detering those awful sparrows from nesting in our yard! It's a good spring for birding!
