BLUE BIRDS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAVORITE OF MINE. THERE COLOR IS AWESOME. THE WAY THEY CARE FOR THEIR YOUNG AND THEY ARE SO PROTECTIVE OF THE AREA WHERE THEY NEST... A VERY FASINATING BIRD. THEY ALSO DO A GREAT JOB OF EATING THE BUGS AROUND THE YARD... SO, HAVING SOME BLUE BIRD NESTING BOXES IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF YOUR YARD WOULDN'T BE A BAD IDEA. THERE IS A DIAGRAM OF A BIRD HOUSE HERE AND IF IT IS NOT LEDGIBLE THEN COME BY THE OFFICE AND I HAVE HAND OUTS FOR YOU. HAVE FUN BIRD WATCHING.
I GOT TO THINKING, AND DECIDED FOR ALL THOSE THAT ARE A LITTLE SQUEAMISH ABOUT GOING OUT AND MUSHROOM HUNTING, PERHAPS YOU MIGHT WANT A VISUAL ON THE MOST COMMON BAD UN-EDIBLE MUSHROOMS SO THAT YOU CAN COMPARE... GO OUT THERE AND HAVE SOME FUN. THERE WILL BE ONES YOU COMPLETLEY RECOGNIZE AS THE GOOD ONES AND THAT WILL GIVE YOU CONFIDENCE. THERE FUN TO FIND, IT WILL GET YOU OUT DOORS, AND THERE FUN TO COOK UP AND EAT TOO. THE GOOD ONES THAT IS !!! LOL
Fall mushroom hunting can be just as fun as Spring. Just a little research and a good picture booklet and your good to go. The mushrooms below are all edible ones. Each kind has a different texture and flavor... Coral one's I must say are still my favorite in fall.. But they all are good in one way or another ... The bearded mushrooms are really good too. they are like frying up cream cheese. it melts in your mouth. The puff balls are simular to the bearded in flavor they are just miniture in size. So, if this tempts your palate a little, then come by the Baxter County Conservation District here in Mtn. Home Arkansas and get one of our free paper booklets with pictures and go have some fun in the woods looking for these delicious morsels. The Beef Steak are suppose to taste like a steak... i havent found one of them, Yet!!
