I like sitting outside in nature too. It can be so relaxing and peaceful to watch the wildlife.

In my "old age", I enjoy sitting outside on a lawn chair and watching the birds. It's nesting time, so they're very busy. Besides the usual sparrows and robins, I have a pair of thrashers, very devoted to each other, cardinals, and bluebirds. I've even seen an indigo bunting. Nice.

Those shows sound very good Randall. I will check them out on PBS.
