  1. Hi, I like your site, I love painting birds. I just started a group on Face book called “Birds in Art”, please look us up, join and put your web link for all to enjoy!
    ps. I love poetry and writing, I just had an inspiration today for an idea connecting birds with poetry. I’ll have to look more on your site, is there a way to find quotes and poetry old enough to be copyright free?
    Thanks,
    Mary
