March birds arrive to cheer up the halt and the lame

This month several submissions for Draw-a-Bird Day are sporting purple casts. This was a huge and delightful surprise to me, as I, too, have had a purple cast on my leg.

Here are all of the birds, whether in casts or not.

    What fun, Marian—all those purple casts. But not so fun in the day to day reality.

    Note: I turned the router off and there it was—a internet connection back on duty.
