Thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. Oklahoma is a very interesting one, with a scissor-tail and mistletoe, which I didn't even know is a flower. I thought it was a parasite! :-)

  2. John, I like the flycatcher. So just how many states have a cardinal as the state bird? There have been many so far, and I thought my home state of Illinois was the only one.

  3. love the scissor-tails. i like ohio's color coordination.

  4. Oh I do like the flycatcher! I think some of the birds I have seen in more than one state. I do like that our (California) bird is the quail, you don't see that one too often either.

  5. I like your #1 Poster. In our house hold we are more Dutch. Ha-ha


  6. And a Happy St. Patricks day to you. There are still more of my favorites today. I cheer for the meadowlark and the prairie Rose.

  7. These are all lovely, John, and the St. Patrick's Day one is so pretty. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. :)

  8. I really am enjoying seeing all the bird postcards. : )
    Happy St Patrick's Day to you too.

  9. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, John :)
    Love the last one this time.
    The first one is too yellow, and I've seen
    enough cardinals so far.
    So thumb up for the pretty flycatcher! :))
    Have a nice and green day

  10. They sure are as lovely as your precious posts. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  11. What a lovely St. Patrick's Day postcard! I love that scene. It looks so cosy & homely. The birds too are all so pretty. I hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day, John.

  12. Love the scissor-tail! All of these are great, however!
