Information about the North Fork of the White River and River of Life Farm; the river, floats, wildlife, history, surrounding country, and the people. I am a lifetime friend of "River of Life Farm" using my Canon cameras.

The Prothonotary Warbler is known as the "Gold and Silver Bird" and it is indeed a brilliant sight. Females are a duller version of the male. His song is a distinctive ringing tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet with all notes on the same pitch. Prothonotaries are the only eastern warbler to use tree cavities for their nests. They make 2 nests during the Summer at ROFF in the North Fork riparian vegetation.
I have spent 45+ years of my life "with wet tennis shoes" around on or near Missouri streams. I am fascinated by the wildlife, love catch and release fly-fishing, canoeing, bird-watching, studying natural flowers and trees. My favorite river is the North Fork of the White and my favorite location is River of Life Farm near of Dora, Missouri. I use Canon DSLR Pro grade cameras and a series of Canon L series lenses.
