Birds Of A Feather

I have wondered about the phrase “Birds of a feather flock together”. So using the tools of the day I found the original on the web. Apparently this old proverb was used  by William Turner in The Rescuing of Romish Fox in 1545. It looked more like this back in the day  “Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together.” (Spell check does not like this one bit but it would have been the way of the pen back in the 16th century, what.)

So here are two birds I captured in the field on our place a few weeks back. Enjoy!

I am a 55 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 24 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
