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.

Red Winged Blackbird
Very common along the river. Particularly noticeable in the spring when they are calling. They spend most of the time on the river bank in the shrubs. They are not a permanent resident of ROLF, but the do come every year to nest.
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.
