I have so many blogs that I love to read, it was very difficult deciding which one to feature for the first Featured Bird Blogger of the Week. A blog that immediately came to mind was Kelly Riccetti’s Red and the Peanut. Kelly is a passionate birder, photographer and artist, she has a keen eye and a great love of nature. I adore Kelly’s photos and paintings. Kelly seems to read as many if not more blogs than I do..I always see her face in the comment sections of other bloggers. A very kind and social blogger.
The Story Behind “Red and the Peanut”
Red and the Peanut is named after my first bird memory. When I was about six, I was at my Great Aunt Mary’s house and she was telling me about Red and the peanut. “Red” was a Northern Cardinal that had trained Aunt Mary to feed it peanuts on demand. Since Aunt Mary’s “Red” started it all, what better name could I choose?
Below are links to several of Kelly’s Blog posts. I pulled out a few of my favorites…..You can click on the links to go to the original posts. I Love the last photo!
