Birds observed in the gardens of Valley View

One of the attractive features of this theme, Orvis,  is the portfolio option.  I chose to use this feature as a way to create a  photographic yard list of the birds, butterflies and other creatures that frequent the gardens at Valley View.  Each will have its own project. I’d love to hear from others who have started photographic lists. It would be interesting to compare and contrast the similarities and differences. Bonnie Michelle
