Spring Fling 2022!
It was a toe tapping, fun filled event as we gathered to enjoy the Spring Fling at Jubilee Farm on Sunday, May 15. Highlight of the event was the spirit filled music of father and son, Tom and Owen Irwin. They brought smiles to our faces and joy to our hearts!

What a wonderful time families had at Jubilee Farm on World Migration Bird Day, May 14. Thank you to Lorna, Sarah and volunteers from the Illinois State Museum for providing bird educational games. The children loved playing and so did we adults! Thank you also to Tony Rothering and his crew from the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders. We saw an incredible array of beautiful birds and learned a lot about them.

Your moment of Zen, brought to you by Jubilee Farm, https://www.richsaal.com/, and God.
Don't forget to make Jubilee Farm part of your holiday shopping this year.
Tuesday proved to be our best day of the fall season at Jubilee Farm... so far. The weather conditions were almost ideal, cloudy skies and very little wind. We captured 57 birds (52 newly banded and 5 recaptures) of 16 species (see attached for details). We had at least 3 instances today of walking up to a net that had 10+ birds captured within! The high count was the 20 birds in Net 8 (bridge net), which included 14 Cedar Waxwings (13 were banded with 1 escapee)! It was quite exciting! Our season total stands at 414 birds captured (385 newly banded and 29 recaptures) of 62 species. We also did add 2 species to the cumulative station total (currently 78 species): Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Dark-eyed Junco. Ba**er Tony Rothering and his assistants, Grace Norris and Samantha Reif did a great job with the high volume of birds! They might need a raise ... or bring more donuts ... 🙂 Next Tuesday (11/16) will be our last banding day for the Fall 2021 season. We can only hope the results will be similar!!
Beautiful sunrise at Jubilee Farm, and the "birds" are watching us put up nets. Maybe next time buddy!

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone. Zechariah 10:1 Celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring with a walk on the trails at Jubilee Farm.
#FeedingHungers Tip #6: Feeding the hunger of the Earth. Earth’s ecosystem is the origin, support, and sustenance of all life. Earth feeds us: bodies, minds, and spirits. We recognize our interdependence with the whole Earth community and have affirmed several corporate stances that acknowledge this: recognizing global climate change, calling for nuclear disarmament, seeking right relationship with all creation and limiting the genetically modified organisms. At Jubilee Farm, our center for ecology and spirituality, we endeavor to model the care required for the sustainability of Earth. ⁠ #CatholicSistersWeek #CSW2021
