Thank you for visiting Snowbird of Paradise.
You, as a reader, are as important to a blog as is the writer, and I am delighted that you have found my site. Please explore the various posts and read as many as take your fancy. I will be happy to hear from you and to respond in the comments sections.
If you think you spot some inconsistencies between English Canadian spellings and American spellings, you are probably right. I should decide on one or the other but, like myself, my spellings tend to travel back and forth.
The Dark-eyed Juncos (aka snowbirds) leave Canada in the winter and return in the spring, and people who do the same are also called snowbirds. Because I planted a Bird of Paradise shrub in a pot and put it out on my patio in California, I have combined the two “birds” in the title of this blog.
