Bird Watching at World's Window 

"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
- Maya Angelou

   For some of us, singing has always been important. We sing in the shower. We sing along with the radio. We sing in choirs. We sing solos. In the midst of our current health crisis, we know it's n ot safe to sing with others and in public right now.

   However, birds in our area are singing their hearts out. A quick walk outside, especially in morning and evening hours yields an entire choir and orchestra of melodies, harmonies and percussion.

   Today we invite you to do some bird watching both inside at World's Window and out in our natural world.

   The other morning I sat in our backyard welcoming the morning by listening to the birds. Join me as we start today's adventure together.

As they always do, the squirrels just had to also "get in the picture."

    On we go! Have your "binoculars"? 
Let's explore bird watching around Kansas City
and in World's Window

Bird Watching in & around Kansas City

 In their Adventure series,  KCUR, our local public radio station, just offered a guide to help us all go out and connect with birds - in our own backyards and neighborhoods, around Kansas City and in short adventures out of town.

While it's not quite time for the major flyways, there are plenty of birds to see. Do you have special places you like to visit to see and hear birds?  We'd love to hear about them!

Bird Watching in World's Window

 Wandering around our store, Della and Jan found bird images on almost every shelf and wall. From little bird finger puppets to jewelry to prints on scarves to large masks, birds are everywhere. Here are just a few special birds we spied in our bird watching in World's Window.

Bird "Watching" through Stories

      Birds are often the main characters in traditional cultural fables, parables and creation stories from all around the world. We invited Joyce Slater, local storyteller extraordinaire, to tell us one such story that likely originated as an African folk tale, which, of course, includes a "truth" or a lesson for us all to consider.

   Take a moment, settle in, and listen to "The Brave Little Bird" as told by Joyce Slater. She's surrounded by many of the birds that we are featuring today in our bird watching adventure.

We love this story that can be enjoyed by all ages. Stay tuned over the next weeks for more stories from Joyce!

  Happy Bird Watching!

   As Lonnie and I refilled our bird feeder this morning, we laughed at the antics of the birds at the feeder and the squirrels and chipmunks that clearly would like to be also perched at the feeder, but have to be content to pick up the fallen pieces on the ground.

   Last week we learned about Global Mamas masks and I shared a recipe for West African Groundnut Stew. Several of you have made the recipe and shared comments about changes you suggest.  I went back to my original hand-written notes in a cookbook falling apart and realized I hadn't adjusted some of the spices correctly. So, if your are interested, the "newly corrected and revised"  recipe is located  here. It includes suggestions for toppings when serving the stew that we particularly enjoy.  Happy eating!

   Thanks for continuing on this new journey with us. We look forward to sharing fun stories with you, new products and diversions as we travel "from here to there and everywhere."

   Our store is closed today, but will be open Wednesday through Sunday for the hours listed below. We invite you to try your own personal shopping time between 10 am and 11 am. (see details below) Add a friend if you'd like and come enjoy World's Window. Just give us a call to schedule your special time.
   For those of you who cannot or choose not to shop in our Brookside store right now, we thank you for your continued online shopping support. 
   And I can't say it enough times -  YOU are an important part of what makes World's Window so special! THANK YOU!
