Roving Robin Report – Week of March 22, 2011

robin on branch chirping Opinions - photo by Scott LiddellBirdy Diamond here, your Roving Robin Reporter. I have been tasked by the lovely Sarah to flutter around the web and bring back news of some of the neat & nifty things we birds (& the occasional bloke) are doing, so we don’t miss anything. (Or at least a lot less than we otherwise might.)


It’s not just people who are thrown into turmoil when a natural disaster happens. As you are considering your giving to help those who are affected by the recent incidents in Japan, please give a thought to helping the animals as well as the humans.

Posts with links to sites where you can help.

Flying Away

There’s more out there of course.
There’s always more.

But for now, I must away, to search out new goodies & delights for next time.

  • If you have anything you’d like me to include in upcoming editions, please let me know.
  • If you have questions or comments on things you’ve seen here or that you’d like to see in upcoming editions, let me know those too.

Until next time!
Chirp, chirp! :>
