As you have noticed, we are posting the 50 States in alphabetical order, so if you've missed a state you want to see, please check the earlier posts.

Maine ...



Maryland ...




Massachusetts ...



For you Cardinal fans, none today, but rest assured, more to come!

  2. I am always happy to see chickadees, and two in one day! I have been listening to their mating song during the past few weeks. I think of those two notes as saying, "pick me!" :-)

  9. Hello John, the little chicadees are very cute. I've always had a soft spot for the very small birds though I do like most birds. This post card series is wonderful. It reminds me of when I was a kid in elementary school. We used to learn about the the birds, flags and flowers that were the symbols of different provinces and states. Not that I remember much but these days I don't think kids learn any of that.
