I grew up on a farm, and we had goats. Over the years we had many different kinds of goats…Nubians, Alpines, LaManchas, and Saanans. I grew up on goats’ milk, and to this day still can’t drink milk from the store. I guess I’m processed dairy intolerant. Raw milk doesn’t seem to bother me.
I remember that we had a few different goats named Buttercup, and this one reminded me of her. (Yes, nanny goats can have beards and horns)

The Stellar’s Jay ( I can’t help but call them blue jay…my kids are constantly correcting me!)
is B.C.’s provincial bird, and a very common one at our feeder. They’re rambunctious, noisy and comical. They squawk at me when they’re out of food, and they make such a mess. They only want the sunflower seeds, so they swish their beaks through the seed, scattering it everywhere, just so they can pick out the sunflower sees. I love watching them because they seem to try so hard to communicate. I’ve had many opportunities to take pictures of them, and I love the brilliance of their feathers.
