The Birds of Troy, Missouri
Here is a brief sampling of
The Birds of Troy, Missouri.

Every photograph on this page
was taken in my backyard, on
the western edge of Troy.

It is amazing the number of birds
that visit us, it seems everyday
has a surprise.

More pages and photos are added
and updated as often as possible.

Being a life-long
resident of the St. Louis
area, how could I not
have a photo
like this of a
"St. Louis Cardinal"?

Aka, a
Northern Cardinal.

What a distinguished
looking fellow!
